Thanksgiving 2017 – Feeding the Homeless

Volunteer Photography in New York – Feeding the Homeless Thanksgiving 2017 – with the 73rd Precinct – Community Affairs, Brownsville, Brooklyn and @latenightjustice


This year, Thanksgiving started one day early, in Little Neck, Queens, at a ristorante named Il Bacco. The manager, Maurizio, arranged for @latenightjustice to get enough food to feed 200 people – at cost. When we arrived he would not take any money. Over the years, from time to time, I haveĀ  volunteered as a photographer locally – at the Community Chest, specifically for the Neighbors In Need program. This is how @latenightjustice and I came to work together. Both organizations aim to help those in need. N Y State Troopers Marine Corps. AssociationĀ  and through mutual connections I found myself documenting this day: FeedingĀ  200 people at a family shelter in Brownsville and depicting law enforcement creating good relationships with those people in the community. A group of youth volunteers were helping serve food. They are know as “Explorers”- local teens who have expressed a desire for a future in law enforcement, and are pictured here with Community Affairs Officer from the 73rd Pct. P.O. Keith Jemmott. Some photos from the day follow.
