Federation of Italian American Organizations of Brooklyn Fundraising Gala POSTPONED TO 2:00 PM SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 15, 2020
In the best interest of the health and wellness of our Families and Supporters, we are postponing the 2020 Fundraising Gala from June 13 to Sunday November 15. We appreciate your understanding and we thank you for your support of the work we do for the community.
The FIAO offers services to a population encompassing ages 5-21 in our various after school sites, provides crucial social services to families through our office’s multi-lingual workers and counselors, and creates opportunities for culture, health & wellness in its 45,000 sq. ft Community Center, Il Centro.
In spite of the COVID-19 Virus generated school closures and adherence to City and State shelter-in place mandates, the FIAO has provided continuation of services remotely. FIAO Social Workers and Counselors have been available to families and seniors via phone, including the delivery of meals to isolated needy seniors in the neighborhood.
FIAO after school staff has offered online activities using platforms such as YouTube, Google Classroom, Microsoft Teams and Google Meet. The online platforms have enabled Il Centro staff to provide programming including STEM, College Classroom, Theatre, Health and Fitness, Sports and Recreation, Italian Lessons, Music and Dance Instruction, and much more.
We look forward seeing you soon to celebrate life and service. Please stay healthy!
