Citing the overwhelming trend of grandparents in the role of primary caregivers for their grandchildren in the Rockaways, Congressman Gregory W. Meeks partnered with the Rockaway Development and Revitalization Corporation and the Community Church of Nazarene to host a special holiday program sponsored by Well- Care. The program included holiday caroling, refreshments, gift bags and toys for 100 grandparents and children who participated. Toys were distributed to each of the three Blanche Community Progressive Day Care Centers, students at PS/MS 253, and children throughout the Arverne Community.
