Our Senior-Junior Visits
Once a month, Castlewood’s Kindness Committee visits Centerlight Senior Center to spread kindness to the seniors that spend their days there. These senior-junior relationships continue to bring great joy to both parties. While seniors delight in the children’s energy, enthusiasm, and acts of kindness, the students experience the intrinsic value of performing kind acts for others and make new connections about life, their elders, and their community.
The KC’s first trip to Centerlight for the 2017-18 Academic Year was on Halloween! It was a true treat for all!

UPDATE: Non-Perishable Food Drive:
The KC’s 2017 Non-Perishable Food Drive was our most successful food drive yet. The KC collected and donated over 100 items to Our Lady of Lourdes Pantry, which serves people in need in Bellerose, Glen Oaks, Queens Village, and parts of Bayside. Members went to the pantry to drop off our donations, learned about needs and logistics of the pantry, and have already started brainstorming new ways to help, like collecting left over breakfast items and launching a cookie and coffee drive in February. THANK YOU to all families who participated in giving back! We love you!
