-Riccardo Gazzaniga   

This has been an unprecedented time with a one-two punch that are inextricably intertwined:

Overnight ALL of Heights and Hills’ clients suddenly became the most vulnerable targets of a global pandemic, the likes of which our country hasn’t seen in over 100 years.  In NYC, 74% of the deaths from COVID have been people over the age of 65, and communities of color have been hardest hit.  >>MORE

Jannine and family

THANK YOU to everyone who helped bring food and cheer to our homebound older neighbors on Thanksgiving Day!

Together with our community partners – the 84th Precinct, BloomAgainBklyn, Camp Friendship Food Pantry, Cobble Hill LifeCare, Grace Church, Packer Collegiate School, Plymouth Church, and 85 volunteers from New York Cares – we delivered to over 200 of our most vulnerable and homebound clients.

“…the most memorable Thanksgiving in a long time.”

Mr. W., Heights and Hills client

As the saying goes, it takes a village. I am grateful that so many gave of their time and energy to help Brooklyn’s oldest feel connected and loved this Thanksgiving holiday.
