In November of 2020, two of our HUH members, Andrea and Tasha were able to take part in Council Woman, Diana Ayala's "We Got You Covered" event. It occurred at La Cuevita Community Garden on 71 East 176th Street. They provided hats, gloves and scarves to displaced and senior citizens. They also handed out goodie bags, hot chocolate, coffee, water and N95 face masks.
Tasha expressed that: "it was a great experience, as a lot of seniors came by and enjoyed themselves. There was free food, good music, and even a dance crew!" They were able to dance all the while keeping COVID safety protocols and measures, get to know the people in the neighborhood and let them know that HUH is there to support and care for them. Andrea also felt that it was a great opportunity for her as she got to meet some important leaders of the community of such as Violeta Galagarza while giving back.
Events like these remind us of what's important in life.
