A letter from Kingsbridge Heights Community Center (KHCC) Executive Director Margaret Della:
“Dear KHCC Supporters,
KHCC participants are in critical need of resources at this time and we would like to ask you to assist us to help our families and community. Many of our families are either lacking the resources to get through this difficult time, or disconnected because they don’t have a computer at home.
Our families are some of the most vulnerable. Low-income children, youth, and adults that cannot afford to purchase necessities such as food, diapers and wipes, or want to continue their studies whether at childcare, school, learning English, preparing to go to college, or wanting to stay connected with the KHCC community, while isolated in their homes.
Your donation will ensure KHCC can provide essential services, food, and emergency supplies to get families through during this crisis.
We thank you for your generosity! As we navigate the COVID-19 outbreak together, we need you and others to continue to dig in to support under served and under resourced families, youth and children. Please donate to support our critical services during this uncertain and stressful time.
To donate, please visit here.
About Kingsbridge Heights Community Center
The Kingsbridge Heights Community Center (KHCC) was founded in 1974 by a group of passionate community organizers. The group was led by three neighborhood women: Mary McLoughlin, Patricia Burns, and Janet Athanasidy.
Upon hearing in 1972 that the 50th Precinct was moving out of its turn-of-the-century building on Kingsbridge Terrace, the three jumped at the opportunity to realize their vision for a community center.
KHCC provides resources to empower Bronx residents from cradle to career to advance education and well-being for a vibrant community. We achieve this in an environment that fosters academic milestones, literacy, mental health support, nutrition, technology, and the arts.
