Elected officials, community leaders and friends of Met Council joined our board members and staff at Met Council’s Annual Legislative Breakfast on June 4th. The event celebrated Met Council’s 45 years of serving New Yorkers in need.
Honorees included Member of Congress Nydia Velazquez, Speaker of the New York State Assembly Carl Heastie, New York City Council Members Joseph Borelli, Margaret Chin, Vanessa Gibson, David Greenfield, and Karen Koslowitz, Commisioner of the Department for the Aging Donna Corrado, and our food distribution partners Sephardic Bikur Cholim and Chazaq.
There were nearly 400 in attendance to support Met Council’s mission to help vulnerable populations of New York City, including the more than 565,000 poor and near-poor living in Jewish households in NYC.
We were honored by the presence of Senator Chuck Schumer, Members of Congress Grace Meng and Jerrold Nadler, NYC Public Advocate Letitia James, NYC Comptroller Scott Stringer, Borough Presidents Melinda Katz and Gale Brewer, Bronx DA Darcell Clark and other noteworthy elected officials politicians past and present including former Congressman Charles Rangel. Their messages were heartfelt and resonated with the audience.
We thank everyone who attended this event, and appreciate the hard work of those who made it happen.
