Join Us At The Grand Rehabilitation and Nursing at Queens For A Special Halloween Event!


It’s October and that means that Halloween is right around the corner. For many New York families,  Halloween can be tricky because many traditional Halloween treats aren’t safe for children with life-threatening food allergies.

In an effort to promote safety, inclusion and respect of individuals managing food allergies, The Grand Rehabilitation and Nursing at Queens, will host its annual Trick-or-Treat Spooktacular in partnership with the Teal Pumpkin Project, a worldwide movement to create a safer, happier Halloween for all kids.  The event is set for the day of Halloween, October 31, FROM 4-8 pm at The Grand at Queens, 157-15 19th Ave Whitestone, NY 11357.


The Grand at Queens

Food allergies are a life-altering and potentially life-threatening disease, and a growing public health issue. For the many children who are diagnosed each year with Celiac disease, even a tiny amount of their allergen has the potential to cause a severe reaction.

By placing a teal pumpkin in front of our facility and offering non-food treats such as yo-yo’s, teal-colored frisbees and other toys as an alternative to candy, we can show children with severe allergies that The Grand Rehabilitation at Queens is a safe place to trick-or-treat without the dangers!

We hope you’ll join us for this special event, which is entirely open to all the beloved parents and children of our community and is our way of giving back to the community.

In advance of this exciting event (and to whet your appetite!), please enjoy these few photos from previous years events!
