MAYOR DE BLASIO, LOCAL POLITICIANS VISIT SCS' SUNNYSIDE UP PRE-KINDERGARTEN PROGRAM

 

 

Mayor Bill de Blasio visited Sunnyside UP, our pre-Kindergarten program, to talk to the children and their parents about the importance of Universal Pre-K (UPK) and early childhood education. NY1 featured the visit in a story you can watch here. On hand to show their support were New York State Senator Michael Gianaris, New York City Council Member Jimmy Van Bramer, and New York State Assemblywoman Catherine Nolan, shown below with Mayor de Blasio and SCS Executive Director Judy Zangwill.

 

 

PET PALS PROGRAM KEEPS PEOPLE AND PETS

TOGETHER

 

A little time and kindness can improve the quality of life for homebound seniors, and help keep people and their pets together where they belong - at home.

 

Thanks to a grant from Amie’s Place Foundation, we are introducing “Pet Pals,” a new program for homebound seniors and family caregivers that will match them with volunteers to provide assistance with pet care. A Pet Pals volunteer might walk the dog, for example, or take the pet to a vet appointment. Volunteers also provide companionship to the senior. In addition, SCS will provide volunteers to foster the pet in the event that a client enters the hospital for a short‐term stay. If you would like help with your pet, would like to volunteer, or would like more information, all (718) 784‐6173, ext. 479 or click here.
