Categories: NewsFeed

We’d like to extend a big thank you to the over 80 volunteers that helped out during Celebrate Hunts Point! this past Saturday. With dedicated hard work, volunteers mulched and cared for over 40 street trees, picked up several bags of garbage from Hunts Point streets,constructed and painted tree guards along the South Bronx Greenway, cared for a community garden, two parks, and the grounds at the Hunts Point Recreation Center! Special thanks to our partners New York City Department of Parks & Recreation Bronx River Allianceand The Point CDC

Thanks also to Corbin Hill Farm and Northwest Bronx Community & Clergy Coalition for helping us make the post-event celebration in the park a success!

Finally, special thanks to Assembly Member, Marcos Crespo, for welcoming the group of volunteers to Hunts Point Riverside Park
