This past Saturday, April 25th Red Hook and our neighborhood partners came together for an Earth Day Celebration! There was Food, Fun and Music! The event was to promote awareness about earth day and ways to help better the environment. With that being said, The Red Hook Community Justice Center was out in full force! Our Community Service Crew participated in a neighborhood clean up and Justice Center staff, including Women in Touch and our Youth Court Members hosted an arts and crafts activity table. Our “Plant A Flower for Your Momma” table allowed children the opportunity to plant wildflowers and decorate flower pots as an early Mother’s Day gift for their mother or someone special. In addition to getting their hands dirty we offered face painting to the children and distributed RHCJC tote bags filled with eco-friendly reading material and information about the Justice Center and all we offer! The event itself was extremely successful and our table was a hit! A special thank you to the NYCHA Farm, Red Hook HUB, Green City Force and the Red Hook Initiative for letting us be a part of the wonderful event!
