November 27, 2020

District Council 9 donated $2,500 and members volunteered their time at First Corinthian Baptist Church in Harlem to distribute warm meals for Thanksgiving.

As COVID-19 upended the daily lives of so many in New York, District Council 9 is doing their part to reach out and show support for their communities.

“District Council 9 is grateful for our continued partnership with First Corinthian Baptist Church as it allows us an opportunity to give back to communities in need,” said Joseph Azzopardi, BM/ST of District Council 9.

“We know that families are struggling this holiday season, and we hope that these food items will have a positive impact and provide some relief to our neighbors in Harlem,” Azzopardi continued.

This is one of three food drives DC 9 has participated in this week throughout New York City’s boroughs to help families put food on the table during this difficult year.
