The community has been getting in the holiday spirit of late. Yesterday, the Fordham Road Business Improvement District, nonprofit healthcare provider Healthplus and Councilman Joel Rivera’s office donated turkeys (see photo at left) to Part of the Solution (POTS), the Webster Avenue organization that runs a food pantry and other services for low-income residents (for more on POTS and the work they do, see here).
On Friday, Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr., gave out 100 free turkeys at the corner of East 180th Street and Southern Boulevard (see photo below) and has been holding similar giveaways this week.
