Thank you to everyone who helped make BxD’s Community Block Party a hit!
Last week, The Bronx Defenders hosted its annual Community Block Party, where clients, community members, friends and family came together and enjoyed games, free food, free health and legal information, and music and entertainment. Despite the threat of rain, we hosted nearly 1,000 people over the course of the day, and dished up meals for over 850.
