BP Spreads The Bounty
On Monday Borough President Marty Markowitz gave away more than 700 turkeys, plus apples, collard greens, baking potatoes and sweet potatoes. Representatives of scores of Brooklyn community groups, including senior centers, churches, women’s shelters, and tenant’s associations, came to Borough Hall to pick up the bounty, which will feed thousands of needy Brooklynites this Thanksgiving holiday.
All of the food given away was donated by Health Plus, Fulton Street Mall Assoc. and the Korean-American Brooklyn Association, NY. Inc.
"I am so happy my annual Thanksgiving food distribution grows each year," said Markowitz. "This year we had even more groups and even more food, which means even more families will have a feast on their table this Thanksgiving, who otherwise wouldn’t be able to share in the joy of the holidays."
