Volunteers Celebrate the Holidays with BRC

Nearly 150 volunteers decorated and celebrated the holidays at BRC programs

It was a wonderful holiday season here at BRC! Nearly 150 dedicated volunteers assisted with Thanksgiving and holiday decorating, meal prep, dinner service, post-celebration clean-up and celebrating the holidays with BRC clients throughout 20 programs. 

Some highlights include a combined group activity between NYU Athletics and the BRC Leadership Council decorating public areas at both Reaching New Heights Residence and The Apartments at Landing Road; a volunteer toy drive to benefit all the children at Liberty Homes; and an annual holiday party at Liberty Homes, courtesy of long-time partner My Sisters' Keeper. 

Check out photos from some of the fun holiday decorating and celebration events below:
