Bronx Holiday Food Drive a Huge Success

Here is a "feel good" post about school children, community organizations and political figures working together to collect canned food and turkeys for the less fortunate in our borough. Kudos to everyone involved.

Happy Holidays!

Assemblyman Jeffrey Dinowitz presented the donations from his holiday canned food and turkey drive to Robert Peralta from the Kingsbridge Heights Community Center and Sister Ellen from the St. Francis of Rome Church. The food, which will go to needy families this holiday season, was generously donated by the students of PS 7, the Riverdale Kingsbridge Academy, PS 81, and PS 24. Money for the purchase of turkeys was donated by students and Jim Napolitano of Ben's Market in Knolls Crescent.
