Forestdale hosted its annual fair on Aug. 29, drawing more than 500 local residents to take part in a day of fun, food, games and back to school-related activities.
The event included a barbecue, bouncy house, face painting, balloon animals, raffles, prizes and information booths sponsored by health and community organizations, which handed out literature to families.
Every child who attended the fair received a new backpack filled with school supplies from donations by Queens Borough President Helen Marshall, Minuteman Press and UNO Chicago Grill.
Forestdale is a nonprofit that aims to ensure that children have assets they need to thrive, such as a safe and secure home life, school supplies and health education.
