Halloween with the 40th

IMG_0790Amidst the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, the Mott Haven neighborhood found a reason to celebrate.  The 40th precinct community affairs officers organized a Halloween Block Party.  The event featured a bounce house, face painting, music, carnival games, a magician, and a candy giveaway.  Jeannette Bocanegra, Caitlin Anderson, and Jennifer Cepero attended the celebration on behalf of CCFY, passing out Halloween-themed bags of treats and distributing information about the South Bronx Community Connections initiative and the month Family Support Groups.  It was great speaking to so many people from the neighborhood, and it gave Jeannette the chance to dress up as Pocahontas’ mom!
