Granting Resources to the Bronx
February 11, 2022

On Sunday, February 6, 2022 at 2 pm, G.R.A.C.E. (Granting Resources And Community Enrichment) Inc., IT’S FROM THE SOLE, and BABA INC., held a collective event. The event was hosted at the Davidson Community Center and the purpose of the event was to fulfill our mission which entails assisting our community in need. We pooled together our resources to assist those affected in the recent Bronx fire by providing basic necessities, toiletries, food, brand new footwear as well as new coats.

IT’S FROM THE SOLE founder Andre McDonnell provided over 200 pairs of brand new sneakers. Since 2012 his initiative to help those in need has ignited the fire fueled by enthusiasm to canvas locations and fill the void of a simple necessity. His organization has donated over 30,000 sneakers within 15 countries and 31 cities and is expanding.

BABA (Bridging Africans Black Americans) Inc., focuses on uniting the Black diaspora through community service and organizes free community events to uplift the community.

As a community it is important to assist our neighbors/community members as it builds a togetherness that brings forth strength in numbers. Community 5 offered their support and volunteers pitched in to ease the process of recovery on the tragedy which occurred on January 9, 2022. 

We appreciate the extension of hospitality from the team at LoLo’s Seafood Shack who didn’t hesitate to lend their support to G.R.A.C.E Inc.,. The warm communication and willingness to help from the Proprietor, Leticia Skai Mohan-Young. Onto the preparation of curry chicken halal meals for the families by Chef Raymond Mohan and the seamless pick up coordination for the event by Manager, Jose Cruz. Harlem was represented as the love, support and appreciation was felt by the recipients of the generous donations.

The outpour of support has been amazing! Community presence is so imperative as the mission states we grant resources and community enrichment. Great effort, intention and support in giving back to our community.
