KINGSBRIDGE HEIGHTS, the Bronx (PIX11) – With the holiday season upon us, a Bronx nonprofit is working hard to ease the burden so many families face when dealing with economic hardships and food insecurity.

The 10,000-square-foot building along Kingsbridge Terrace in the Bronx used to be a police precinct. But for the last 50 years, it’s been home to Kingsbridge Heights Community Center (KHCC), a safe haven where the Bronx community can socialize, learn and grow.
