Catholic Charities Junior Board members partied with seniors at Catholic Charities’ Lott Residence, a home for the elderly in Harlem, in celebration of Mardi Gras.
They danced to a wide range of Bayou beats, feasted on fruit platters, and threw beads while their faces were masqueraded.
“This was a great opportunity for Junior Board members to socialize with our friends at the Lott Residence and spend time with those who are eager to share their stories and listen to ours,” said Catholic Charities Junior Board Member Kellen Dougherty.
“Although our friends at the Lott live in an assisted living facility, the amount of energy and joy that emanates from these residents is incredible, and an inspiration to all of us on the Junior Board. We look forward to continuing our partnership with the Lott so we can maintain and strengthen the friendships we have made with so many residents there.”
The event marked one of dozens of volunteer opportunities available this Easter season.
