It was a blast at the Healthy Families Picnic in Staten Island last week when family, friends and supporters gathered to enjoy a sunny day while celebrating themselves and their community. 

 

Throughout the afternoon there were so many activities to choose from: Arts and crafts, face painting, basketball and running through water sprinklers! Together, with observing a Native American drum circle and having the opportunity to climb a Rock Tower Wall provided by the NYPD, there was so much to do and see! The Healthy Families Picnic was made extra memorable by our special supporters Fidelis Care, KTU and the NYPD–we couldn’t have done it without them! But what made the day particularly amazing were all the astounding families that were there to have a good time!

 

“Our families have stated that this is a wonderful opportunity for the family to spend a fun day together, as well as for those who are more isolated to get out, meet people and learn some of the services available in the community,” – Dorothy Gordon, Healthy Families Supervisor at The Foundling.

 

Other annual events coming up are our Pumpkin Picking Adventure (in costume) and a Christmas Party! We also will be providing trips to see Elf and Disney On Ice.
