Legal Aid and Children's Aid Sponsor Bronx Field Day For 150 Foster Children
TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 04, 2012

The Legal Aid Society’s Juvenile Rights Practice, in partnership with The Children’s Aid Society, is sponsoring Bronx Field Day on Saturday, September 8, in MacCombs Dam Park in the Bronx. Field Day represents an opportunity for Legal Aid staff, working in conjunction with neighborhood social service providers, to provide clients and their families with information about, and access to, resources focusing on health and wellness. It will combine a schedule of athletic events, run by community-based organizations, with healthy food stations and information tables focusing on nutrition and wellness issues. After-school activity providers will also be present to speak with caretakers and clients about offerings in their neighborhood. Through events like Field Day, The Legal Aid Society provides additional assistance to families and addresses their needs in the community.
