In spite of the challenges of 2020, West Harlem Development Corporation (WHDC) has doubled-down on its commitment to support the community now more than ever. On the Saturday before Thanksgiving, WHDC continued its collaboration with the NYPD 26th Precinct, elected officials, and other donors on the 2020 Annual Turkey Giveaway.
Every year, WHDC’s financial support has helped secure turkeys for West Harlem residents to enjoy the holiday with their families. Recognizing the greater need in 2020 due to increased food insecurity, WHDC donated an unprecedented 500 turkeys to benefit seniors, the unemployed, and underemployed making the event on Saturday, November 21st a reality.
Take a look below at some of the memories captured on the beautiful sunny day in West Harlem. The WHDC Board is grateful to everyone involved and thanks the MCD9 community for the opportunity to serve.
