Gilda’s Club NYC created & implemented a new virtual program called Noogies at Noon in July. This exciting program was created for the kids of Gilda’s Club to connect, participate in interactive workshops & games, and have tons of fun! The program was facilitated from July 13th – July 17th via Zoom for one-hour midday.
The program was generously supported through numerous volunteers from organizations including Cherub Improv, Theatre Within, Energetic Juniors, and Yogi Beans! In addition to the body movement, creative expression, and stress reduction workshops, program staff members Michele Halusic & Dena Kaliades facilitated a Scavenger Hunt Show & Tell, an interactive activity wherein all of the children were provided with prompts to find something specific in their homes and bring back to the Zoom screen to share with the group! Twenty-one children participated in this fun and interactive program over the course of the week, with positive feedback shared from all children and their families.
