On November 19, the Hostos Health and Wellness Center joined the Montefiore Medical Center and Empire Blue Cross Blue Shield to host the College’s annual Thanksgiving food drive.
Fabian Wander, Director of the Health and Wellness Center, collaborated with Hostos Board Member Jason A. Caraballo and Administrative Coordinator Single Stop USA Madeline Cruz to make the event a reality. Over 2,000 bags of food were distributed at the drive, which was held in the A-Building Parking Lot.
“This year’s drive was especially important,” Wander said, “as we were able to serve so many Hostos families and community members during these challenging times.” He thanked Cruz and Caraballo, the Office of Public Safety, Campus Operations, and volunteers from the Hostos Leadership Academy for their hard work.
Among those who attended were Dean of Community Relations Ana Garcia Reyes, Development Specialist Idelsa Mendez, and colleagues from Building and Grounds, Public Safety, SDEM, and the Office of the President.
