For BronxWorks programs, the end of the Summer means more than just the return of the Fall and the school year. It also means our end of summer trips, and after a couple of summers without them, you can bet our participants were excited. In this spotlight, we share two trips for BronxWorks participants at different ends of the age spectrum.
BronxWorks Older Adult Centers Visit Holiday Hill Park
Seniors from BronxWorks programs and Older Adult Centers visited Holiday Hill Park in Prospect, CT on August 25 for an end-of-summer celebration! Over 250 BronxWorks seniors enjoyed a number of activities, including dancing, bingo, boating, and the big pool! Breakfast, lunch, dessert, and snacks were provided during the all-day party. BronxWorks seniors were joined by other seniors from across NYC. We had such a wonderful day celebrating with our seniors!
BronxWorks Family Shelters Visit DreamWorks Water Park at American Dream Mall
For their first big trip since the COVID-19 pandemic, the BronxWorks Family Residences celebrated the end of the 2022 Summer by making a splash at the DreamWorks Water Park at the American Dream Mall in New Jersey. The trip was funded through donations raised by our amazing riders in this year’s TD Five Boro Bike Tour. Over a dozen families and staff from all three BronxWorks Family Residences enjoyed time at the water park followed by lunch and activities in the mall. Thank you to our amazing volunteer riders, fundraisers, and everyone who donated to make this trip happen!
