Founder of BKBNK, INC, Jude Bernard, says--“Despite how NYC is one of the most financially stable cities, with some of the wealthiest people in the world, there are people who do not make enough to get by, and it’s even tougher during the holidays.”
The Brooklyn Bank raised $81k in two weeks for their 4th annual Turkey & Groceries Giveaway. Anyone who showed up received everything needed to prepare a Thanksgiving feast. Turkey, stuffing, vegetables, cornbread, gravy, and dessert were handed out to families. Community partners, the 79th Precinct Community Affairs Division, Fresh Direct, The Black Veterans for Social Justice, and Bedford Stuyvesant Restoration Corporation came to support the Thanksgiving giveaway and hand out food to the community. It was a day of love, harmony, and togetherness at BKBNK, INC.
