BROOKLYN - About 60 kids who live at the Win shelter in East New York were treated to field day filled with games on Thursday.
Shelter staff and volunteers from Black Stone were on hand to serve as counselors at Camp Win. Each kid received a bag full of summer essentials like a beach ball, towel, hat, T-shirt and water bottle.
Staffers say that many parents at the shelter work, so having a safe place for their children during the summer is vital.
The kids take multiple trips during the summer, including a trip to the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum. Another favorite of theirs is bowling.
