Youngsters Celebrate Earth Day and Week of the Young Child with Arts and Creativity

In celebration of Earth Day 2021 and Week of the Young Child 2021, our Early Childhood students from the Catholic Charities Therese Cervini Early Childhood Development Center in Queens, created a collage project with natural materials that they had collected outside their homes to create Earth inspired art. Check out our little artists in the making as they celebrated child development through arts and crafts!
Since the pandemic began, Catholic Charities Brooklyn and Queens has witnessed a 1,000 percent increase in food requests and has provided much-needed food packages and services at 49 Catholic Charities parish-based food pantries. In total, the agency distributed over $3.4 million in food assistance in 2020. In addition, Catholic Charities witnessed a 37 percent increase in clients in 2020, and continued to deliver mental health counseling, housing services, family services and early childhood education.
