Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr., thanks to the collaboration of many companies and organizations like Baldor, Western Beef, Westside Foods, Health Plus and Bronx Lebanon Hospital,  distributed hundreds of turkeys to needy families in the Bronx. Diaz Jr. delivered the turkeys to Bronx soup kitchens, family shelters, veterans and senior centers.

“My office wants to make sure that our families in The Bronx will be able to enjoy this Thanksgiving holiday. Unfortunately many of our residents struggle every day to bring food to the table and we are trying to make a small difference in the lives of the neediest Bronxites” Diaz said.
