The Bronx Community Recovery Center celebrated National Recovery Month by hosting their 2nd Annual Recovery Day Celebration in the Bronx at St. Mary’s Park. BCRC staff were on hand to spread the word about their services, joined by community partners: Project Samaritan, Catholic Garden Society and Home Bureau, Champion Learning Center, and The Wellness Center of the Albert Einstein College of Medicine.
Health and wellness information was distributed with giveaways, as well as blood pressure testing, courtesy of Taino Pharmacy. Entertainment included music, dancing, and a barbeque prepared by BCRC volunteers and Phoenix House AmeriCorps members. A special ceremony was held to present the trophy to the winners of the BCRC’s “Hoopin’ for Recovery” Basketball League Championship, awarded to Odyssey House’s team. Congratulations to all on the success of this event for the community.
