Show Your Support, Show Your Talent!

We have two things happening here at the Verdesian that we're very excited about!

Thanksgiving Food Drive

We're asking Solaire and Verdesian residents to help provide food to families who are less fortunate.

In partnership with the Lions Club International, we'll be collecting canned foods, and other items, to help support Thanksgiving pantries.

The homeless and poverty statistics (as of September 2016) recorded over 15,000 families lodging nightly in NYC shelters. And 40% of those standing in soup kitchen lines - 2 out of 5 - are children.

There is now a box in the  lobbies of both the Solaire and the Verdesian for contributions. (Please donate before Monday the 21st, as boxes will be collected then.)

We'd love you to contribute:

  • Cereal
  • Boxed milk
  • 15oz Canned, Non-Perishable Items
  • 5oz Cans (Chicken or Tuna)
  • 1 liter Juices
  • Peanut Butter

As well as:

  • Toilet Paper
  • Shampoo
  • Body Wash
  • Soap
  • Baby Wipes
  • Diapers
  • Jars of Baby food
  • Infamil
  • Baby rice cereal

Thank you for helping make other families' Thanksgiving brighter!


The Solaire and Verdesian Talent Show

Bring yourselves and your little munchkins to the Solaire and Verdesian's first Talent Show!

On November 18th at 4pm - in the Solaire Lobby.

Encourage your child to explore and showcase their different talents.

Can they make shadow puppets? Do they juggle? Are they able to sing the alphabet backwards? Could they make everyone laugh with a joke?

Music, magic and dance are always a great choice for an act - but less-intuitive performances can be just as compelling! For instance, science experiments and storytelling also make for great entertainment.

Children learn by example so consider teaming up with them and participating with your unique talent.

Show us what you've got on the 18th!

If you plan to attend, please RSVP with a brief description of the skill you'll be showcasing (to: verdesian (at) ).

We look forward to seeing you - and your talents!
