Newly Appointed Lieutenant Governor Brian Benjamin And Others Bring Hope For Harlem

August 28, 2021

Today, on August 28, 2021, First Corinthian Baptist Church, New York State Senator and newly appointed Lieutenant-Governor Brian Benjamin, and District Council 9 will donate.

They will donate thousands of groceries, hygiene products, back-to-school supplies, and much more at its Hope for Harlem Event.

The event will be a block party and will also distribute COVID-19 vaccines to residents who have not received one yet in an effort to keep communities safe and healthy. Additionally, mental health resources and job recruitment will be provided along.

The Hope for Harlem initiative takes a holistic approach to serve the community, focusing on the mind, body, and soul of Harlem’s residents. Last year’s event successfully gifted over 2,000 care packages and registered hundreds to vote and complete the census.
