Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of New York recently partnered with Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSK) to host a special event in the Bronx, exclusively for seniors in need. Over 100 seniors were provided with free health screenings through the services offered by the new MKS Ralph Lauren Cancer Center.
The event, held at the Second Farms property in the Bronx, was made possible through Catholic Homes New York, an agency of Catholic Charities New York dedicated to providing affordable housing and support services to communities throughout the city. On this impactful Tuesday, the Catholic Charities team worked tirelessly to distribute much-needed food pantry items to seniors facing challenges in accessing basic necessities.
This collaboration not only addresses immediate needs but also emphasizes the importance of holistic care for vulnerable communities. The health screenings provided by MSK underscore the commitment to proactive healthcare, allowing seniors to prioritize their well-being and catch potential health issues early on.
The Catholic Charities and Memorial Sloan Kettering partnership signifies a powerful synergy between two organizations dedicated to serving and enhancing the lives of individuals in the community. By combining forces, they exemplify the strength that comes from unity and collaboration in pursuing a common goal – the well-being of those in need.
Catholic Charities New York and Memorial Sloan Kettering have set an example of how organizations can come together to make a positive impact, fostering a healthier and more resilient community for all.
