Volunteers Hit Broadway

broadway Thanks to a generous grant from Bronx Council member Maria Baez that aims to bridge the generation gap through community service, Met Council’s senior clients and student volunteers attended Broadway’s Bye Bye Birdie this January.

Bronx public school students accompanied low income senior clients to the show and afterwards discussed their impressions of the performance together. Thanks to this wonderful opportunity, both our clients and volunteers were able to go to a Broadway show – an experience that they otherwise might not have been able to have.

So everyone got to “put on a happy face” at the unique and exciting volunteer event!
