About 30 child patients and their families gathered with staff and volunteers to celebrate Thanksgiving on Wednesday, November 21, at ArchCare’s Terence Cardinal Cooke Healthcare Center on 105th Street in Manhattan.

The gathering was the first of its kind since the Covid pandemic. Family members and caretakers enjoyed a three-course meal with soup, turkey and trimmings, and dessert for families. Meals were specially prepared for many of the children, who were born with physical or developmental disabilities and are full-time residents of the ArchCare facility. 

The evening opened with a blessing by Father Juan Enrique Toro, the center’s chaplain. On hand to assist with serving were Knights and Dames of Malta, who ensured that each participant received their fill of soft drinks and food.

A live band provided music throughout the event, including classic tunes by Frank Sinatra and Elton John.
