Bronx nonprofit has helped address community needs for nearly 50 years
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.
Their goal is to build a pipeline of future college graduates, help participants achieve career goals and become financially independent. At the cornerstone of it all is helping to build a healthier Bronx, and it starts with healthy food. The nonprofit was handing out poultry to families in need on Wednesday.
