In today`s newsletter, I want to highlight that this week we are celebrating our Teachers and Nurses. Now, more than ever, it is important to recognize our healthcare workers and educators, as they continue to do their job despite the myriad of challenges they are encountering as a result of the ongoing pandemic. Please make sure to share your gratitude with friends, family, and neighbors in these professions and on social media to remind them of the support that they have from our community. You can thank medical professionals at Bronx Care hospital by sending an email to email@example.com.
The month of May is also Mental Health Awareness Month. Remember to take time for yourself to decompress and if you need to speak to someone, you can call 1-888-NYC-Well (692-9355), TEXT: “Well” to 65173, or CHAT ONLINE at nyc.gov/nycwell.
Over the past few weeks, our office has coordinated several meal distributions throughout the district and will be working to secure face masks for residents. If you are interested in being a volunteer with our office, you can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Today`s newsletter will highlight updates related to COVID-19, upcoming virtual events from other events, general information and announcements from Mayor de Blasio and Governor Cuomo. If you need to reach our office, you can contact us Monday – Friday from 10 AM – 5 PM at 718-588-7500 or email District16Bronx@council.nyc.
Stay safe and stay healthy!
