BxCHL prides its selves on the multiple initiatives that we have created to help our population through a diverse amount of support groups such as Art Therapy, Yoga courses, weight loss programs, and more. But, with the halt to our in person programs being shifted to online, we felt like there was more we could do for our community.
Inspired by the efforts of Elies Montaz, a man who has been organizing weekly Sunday cleanings throughout different districts in The Bronx, BxCHL felt like it was their duty to also lend a helping hand. On Sunday, July 26th, BxCHL members volunteered with Elies Montaz and other volunteers from different initiatives throughout The Bronx such as Bronx for Black Lives organizers and BronxSole to clean up Van Cortlandt park. This move by Mr. Montaz really brings the community together and shows that organization and commitment can visibly make a change to our community!
