On Sunday, December 16, 2018, myself, 4th Ward resident, Jennifer Belton, Peter and Robin Merante attended the FASNY Firefighter’s home for some BINGO and cookies. Snow costumes donated by the Salvation Army.
I called FASNY and asked them “What do the residents need for the holidays?” I was told that most would be happy with a hand-signed holiday card, and some BINGO and cookies.
I called my BINGO friends, Peter and Robin Merante, who were more than happy to help out.
I ordered firefighter-themed holiday cards for each resident. All were signed by the ‘Hudson Elves’.
We played BINGO with the residents who won cookies and scratch-off tickets as prizes. Scratch-off tickets were donated by Jes Cunningham Kastner and her cleaning company, Clean Images.
Says Peter Merante, “We had a really good time with the residents, and hope to do it again next year.”
