On Wednesday, August 21st, Macy’s and the Carter Burden Network (CBN) celebrated National Senior Citizens Day with a full day of exciting activities for East Harlem seniors at the Carter Burden/Leonard Covello Senior Center (Covello).
Covello is a program of the Carter Burden Network. Macy’s also presented a $25,000 check to Executive Director of the Carter Burden Network, William J. Dionne, which will provide continued support for the Macy’s Creative Arts Center.
Macy’s volunteers provided a full day of fun-filled activities for local seniors that included sewing embellishment courses, prepping and serving lunch, beauty tips from Macy’s beauty advisors during a how-to-beauty class, and leading technology info sessions for seniors.
A leader in aging services, CBN promotes the well-being of seniors 60 and older through a continuum of services advocacy, arts and culture, health and wellness, and volunteer programs all oriented to individual, family and community needs in New York City.
The Carter Burden Network is partially funded by New York City Department for the Aging.
