Bronx Courthouses, Bronx, New York
On Friday, January 14, 2022, the Latino Court Officers Society, the Sankofa Society, and the Supreme Court Officers Association delivered relief supplies they collected for the victims of the major fire in an apartment building in the Bronx which took place on Sunday, January 9, 2022. That blaze left 17 people dead, including 8 children, and dozens of others injured.
The Court Officers collected toiletries, combs/brushes, new and lightly used clothing, socks, hats, gloves, scarves, laundry supplies, blankets, throws, sheets, and new pillows at collection sites set up at several Bronx courthouses from January 11, 2022 through January 13, 2022. They delivered the items to a central distribution point in the Bronx on January 14, 2022.
The fire was described by the New York City Mayor as one of the worst fires the city has experienced in modern times.
Congratulations to all of our honorees!
