Children of the City’s 2014 Annual Carnival was a bigger success than ever before! With more than 700 people in attendance, the COC yard was packed with smiling faces and fun activities for all to enjoy. We featured a huge bouncy house, face and nail painting stations, sand art and games such as tug-of-war and potato sack races. For parents, COC offered a workshop led by our generous sponsor, HealthPlus, on nutrition and healthy eating. For families, we offered affordable health services from our partners at Maimonides Hospital and Parish Benefits. Parents also had the opportunity to register their children for exciting upcoming events as well as our Create Success Afterschool Program which provides much needed academic support to local youth throughout the school year.
We want to thank all who volunteered and contributed to make this event possible for the children of Sunset Park. Being from challenged economic households where visits to amusement parks or nail salons is not affordable, the children are always thrilled to come to the COC site every year to enjoy fun activities with their peers in a safe and welcoming environment!
