Thank you BMO Capital Markets, one of our top corporate partners, and Holy Apostles Soup Kitchen, one of our Emergency Food and Shelter Program (EFSP) partners, for your impactful teamwork today!

Together, they provided a warm, nutritious meal to hungry New Yorkers. With BMO Capital Markets’s support, visitors to the soup kitchen enjoyed Vietnamese glazed chicken, lentil salad with red onions, cherries, and capers, garden salad, lemongrass brown rice, fruit, milk, coffee, and tea. …Umm yum!

#tbt: Today, we’re throwing back to some incredible impact! Last week, #BrownBrothersHarriman (BBH) volunteers chipped in to expand +GrowNYC Governors Island Teaching Garden. Built for #NYC schoolchildren, the garden gives kids the chance to plant, water, weed, mulch, harvest, and more, while learning about the importance of agriculture. By supporting the farm’s development, #BBHCares is connecting even more students to these educational opportunities. Thanks BBH! #FeedNYC #NYCStrong

The red carpet was an open field to the end zone at last Tuesday's GridironGala and the winners of the evening—our City's most-vulnerable neighbors, especially our kids. Thank you for teaming up with us, the New York Jets, and the New York Giants to make our Gala an incredible success!
