Dear Neighbor,


Thank you for joining us for another week in review.


The time has come! Bronx week is just around the corner, and we are so excited for you all to see what we have been working on! Bronx Week 2023 will celebrate the very best our Borough has to offer with an array of events for our veterans, seniors, educators, parents, entertainers, youth, business leaders, healthcare professionals, volunteers and so many other members of our community. For more information about this year's events, click here.

In anticipation of Prom season, we will be collecting prom dresses and suits for our Prom Dress and Suit Giveaway taking place Friday, May 19th at Borough Hall. We hope you can help make this Prom season magical for our Bronx high school seniors. To register for the giveaway, click here.


Lastly, The New York Academy of Medicine is working with the Bronx Borough President’s Office and Council Members Eric Dinowitz and Marjorie Velazquez to conduct an online and paper survey of adults age 65+ who live in The Bronx. We want to hear from each of you about how well the borough is meeting your needs and suggest ways that The Bronx can better support older adults and people of all ages. Your responses will be anonymous, and the collected data from this survey will be shared directly with the Bronx Borough President’s Office, along with concrete recommendations on how to make The Bronx the best borough for people to age-in-place. You can complete this survey in English, Spanish, Bengali, Chinese, Italian or Russian online or email to receive a paper survey in any of these languages. Thank you so much for your time and your input.


As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact our office at 718-590-3500 or email us at


In partnership,

Bronx Borough President Vanessa L. Gibson


Thank you to everyone who joined us for our Bronx Denim Day March against Sexual Assault!

Survivors deserve to be heard and they deserve to take up space. Thank you for sharing your stories and for reminding us that our circumstances do not define us.

I was proud to join with NYC Comptroller Brad Lander, SAPNA NY, Council Member Amanda Farias and NY State Senator Nathalia Fernandez for an Iftar Celebration here in the Bronx!

Around 200 families received meals for their first dinners. Thank you SAPNA NY for your dedication to supporting our South Asian communities in the Bronx and beyond.

Thank you to our District Attorney Darcel Clark and Baychester Community Center for hosting a Child Abuse Prevention Event.

Our children learned about internet safety, body safety, bullying, prevention and so much more. Thank you DA Clark for always prioritizing the safety of our youth and families.
