March was a major month for volunteering!
On March 11, 2012 volunteer group New York State of Mind came back to Bellevue to help the younger unit of Child & Adolescent Inpatient Psychiatry create leprechaun hats out of foam paper.
March 13 marked our monthly volunteer event. From 6:30PM-8:00OPM volunteers worked with the teens of Child & Adolescent Inpatient Psychiatry to decorate “lucky charms” made of fabric. The adolescents presented their charms to the group and shared their thoughts on luck.
The younger unit learned the legend of Johnny Appleseed through story and tasted different kinds of apples. Apples were not only sliced for tasting but also cut up for using as stamps.
On March 20, 2012 a group of volunteers from Credit Suisse brought shirts and fabric markers for the younger unit of Child & Adolescent Inpatient Psychiatry to decorate. The weather was so nice on the first day of spring that we were able to move the activity to the roof where kickball and other active games provided even more fun.
Thank you to all of our volunteers for contributing towards supplies, providing snacks, and bringing smiles!
