On Tuesday, July 21, 2020, Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz, Jr. was joined by hip-hop superstar and Bronx Walk of Famer Fat Joe to distribute FreshDirect produce boxes to R.A.I.N. Gunhill Neighborhood Senior Center.

The Bronx native previously worked with the Borough President’s office, having donated new computers to the students of his alma mater, P.S. 146—Edward Collins, back in 2016, as well as launched an educational initiative in 2018 designed to increase students performance.

Students in four Bronx public schools; P.S. 146, M.S. 123, Accion Academy and I.S. 217 School of Performing Arts; were tasked with working together to improve overall outcomes within their classrooms based on a variety of factors; including student engagement, attendance and total number of books read.

Each student in the class that showed the most improvement won Jordan sneakers courtesy of Fat Joe.
