Fundraiser to Feed a Hungry Bronx Surpasses Goal in Less Than a Week!

Last week Loving The Bronx launched a fundraiser to help keep their free community refrigerator in Parkchester stocked through the end of the year.

The goal was $6,000 and in less than a week, all you amazing people donated whatever was within your heart and capacity or helped spread the news.

This free community refrigerator in Parkchester will continue to be fully stocked through the end of the year thanks to generous readers like you.

Not only was the goal met but it has been surpassed by almost $2,000 as of this writing which only means Loving The Bronx can continue to feed hungry Bronxites past the new year.

This couldn’t have been done without the help and support of the following people who generously donated to the GoFundMe campaign:

  • Mike Gupta
  • Lynne Corry
  • Latanya DeVaughn (shout out to Bronx Bound Books for always supporting!)
  • Emily Walker
  • Kelston Bascom
  • Katia Portela
  • Bafemi Silver

  • Abbi Newfeld
  • Selena Ortega
  • Ariadna Phillips

  • Lina Bracero
  • Julian Monserrate
  • Jacob Nardone

  • Adam Prato
  • Angela Tovar
  • Jose Galarza
  • Ivy Negron
  • Khamini Persaud
  • Amelia Zaino
  • Welcome2TheBronx
  • And all the donors who wished to remain anonymous.

We would especially like to thank a donor who wishes to remain anonymous who donated $5,000 to the fundraiser. Your generosity is greatly appreciated and will make a huge impact on the lives of our residents that are facing hunger.

We also want to remind you that it’s not too late to donate, since this is an ongoing effort started by Loving The Bronx and hungry families won’t disappear overnight so please consider making a donation.

Thanks again to everyone for showing how we take care of our community!
