This June, Sam Tocker CSC volunteered at the 2018 Games for Change at Parsons School of Design. Founded in 2004, Games for Change facilitates the creation and distribution of social impact games that serve as critical tools in humanitarian and educational efforts. Sam Tocker CSC attended a two day orientation and then volunteered at the 3 day event – as ushers, cafeteria workers, market place staff and hospitality. Hospitality was a major responsibility as it sets the tone for attendees when they are greeted at the entrance to Games for Change. Ryan McCabe, Volunteer Coordinator for Games for Change said about Sam Tocker CSC volunteers “…your team was amazing, it was really a pleasure having you all, here’s to doing it again next year.” Sam Tocker is very enthusiastic about volunteering again next year!
Lifespire’s Queens South Comprehensive Services Center took a nostalgic trip back to the Roaring ‘20s, transforming the Center into The Great Gatsby Ballroom. The Flappers and Gents brought the era back to life on both the runway and dance floor!
This spring the Sam Tocker Comprehensive Services Center presented its first annual Gospel Fest. The event came from the participants in the Sam Tocker’s self-advocacy group.
The Gospel Fest was well attended with participants from other Lifespire programs and family members. Congratulations to all or our singers!
