This month, The Execu|Search Group sponsored an event at Good Shepherd’s Red Hook Community Center Beacon at PS 15. At the summer program, children, aged 5, 6, and 7, enjoyed an afternoon filled with face painting, balloon sculptures, dancing, and a magic show. “As part of our continuing efforts to fully integrate ourselves with our clients’ missions, this is the first in a series of social services programs we will be supporting,” explains Jill Bragg, a Managing Director within Temporary Staffing who helped organize this event. “In order for us to truly help our clients achieve their mission and long-term goals, we believe that we have to do more than simply provide them with the staff needed to manage their caseloads.” Founded in 1991 as one of New York City’s original 10 Beacon programs, the Red Hook Community Center Beacon at PS 15, provides year-round, day, evening, and weekend activities for more than 2,000 young people and their families annually. “Our staff works diligently to give each child a safe and happy summer full of arts and crafts, swimming, games, and educational enrichment,” says Tricia Blanchard, Corporate Relations Manager of Good Shepherd Services. “Having events like this helps us provide even more meaningful and memorable experiences to these young people. We are very grateful to the Execu|Search team for coming out to Red Hook and making this very magical event possible for our kids!” For more information on Good Shepherd Services, please visit their website, here.
