Dear Neighbor,


Thank you for joining us for another week in review!


After last week's downpour, the Bronx Summer Concert Series is back and ready to go! Our next stop: Crotona Park! Join us for an afternoon of dancing, singing, and community during a concert featuring performances by legendary artists. For a list of upcoming events, click here.

Also, we hope you will volunteer with us for our 2023 Bronx Summer Clean-Up Series. Volunteers get free tickets to a Yankees game as a thank-you for their hard work! Cleaner streets and community engagement are important to us, and we’re proud to support this important annual cleanup series alongside our partners. For information on how to get involved, click here.

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



Congratulations to Stop & Shop on the launch of CHAM Fresh Connect! This initiative, in partnership with About Fresh and the Children's Hospital at Montefiore, aims to connect healthcare professionals and patients to healthy food options.

For this pilot program, families will receive pre-paid debit cards to purchase healthy food and produce at Stop & Shop supermarkets.

I am so grateful to have partners who are equally committed and dedicated to combatting food insecurity and creating access to healthy food for all.

Thank you to the Bronx Chamber of Commerce for hosting a BX City Council and NY Senate Forum.

We were happy to connect with local business owners and discuss economic development in our great Borough.

Congratulations to our new NYPD Commissioner Edward Caban on his appointment and making history as our city’s first Latino Police Commissioner!

Public safety is a top priority for us in the Bronx and I look forward to working with Commissioner Caban to ensure we keep our residents safe.
