The Foundling’s Developmental Disabilities Division Annual Friends and Family BBQ was a huge success!
Our biggest annual event is the highlight of the summer for many of the people that live in our residences, attend our day or community habilitation programs, or participate in our employment services programs. It’s an opportunity to enjoy great food, play games, relax in the sun, and connect with family and friends.
This year’s event was no exception – hosted on August 18 at Glen Island Park in New Rochelle, over 1,000 attendees enjoyed a beautiful day in the park. Foundling staff, trustees, participants, and families socialized and mingled with the crowd.
Entertainment and activities included face painting, balloon twisting, and carnival games. Attendees enjoyed a catered meal, with volunteers from BNY Mellon’s Corporate Volunteer team providing assistance as servers. Uncle Louis G’s Homemade Italian Ice was enjoyed as well.
Our Developmental Disabilities Division strives to provide the people we support with opportunities to reach their full potential and live their best lives – and through social experiences like this, they not only enjoy community interaction and socialization, but feel truly embraced by The Foundling family.
