Bronx residents immediately gave from their hearts to help the victims of Hurricane Katrina, but one community seemed to be at the forefront of a number of efforts to get victims in the Gulf Coast back on their feet again and their help continued with a start of a New Year.
Community Board 6 welcomed the public to witness the official sendoff of clothing and other materials donated by concerned residents, tenants groups, homeowners associations and other community-based organizations, as part of the latest relief effort to aid victims of the devastating hurricane.
On Tuesday, January 3, donations were packed on a Salvation Army van in front of the Howard Johnson Express Inn, on Boston Road. Once packed away, the items will be shipped to needy families in the Gulf Coast region.
