IN ORDER TO KEEP OUR COMMUNITY SAFE FOLLOWING THE COVID-19 SURGE IN NEW YORK CITY, EDUCATIONAL ALLIANCE IS SLOWLY RETURNING TO IN-PERSON AND HYBRID CLASSES FOR OLDER ADULTS. WE WILL CONTINUE TO KEEP THE PROGRAMMING SCHEDULE BELOW UP-TO-DATE. IN-PERSON DINING HAS BEEN TEMPORARILY SUSPENDED BEGINNING WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 22, 2021.  

WCBL will provide members with Grab and Go meals from Monday through Friday, excluding holidays, from 12 pm to 12:30 pm. Meals will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis and do not require reservations. Members must still properly wear face masks and maintain six-feet of physical distance from one another while participating in meal pickups.  

Social Services will still be available via phone, email, or Zoom.
