Jason Garcia will be featured on City & State’s first-ever Bronx Heroes list, which highlights the work of exceptional individuals whose bravery and dedication is keeping New York City going during a time of crisis.
At the outset of the COVID pandemic, Jason’s work quickly pivoted to virtual programming as he implemented a range of virtual activities to address our children’s physical, emotional, and educational needs. Under Jason’s leadership, almost 400 young people were served in the period that followed the abrupt closing of the NYC public school system through art projects, homework help, and educational enrichment programs accessible from the safety of our participants’ homes. Jason also coordinated the delivery of meals and PPEs to residents and seniors at the Davidson Community Center and has been instrumental in maximizing our efforts to help our community.
SoBro is proud to have witnessed such growth from this excellent person. His story serves as an inspiration to many, and he is truly a Bronx hero. A well-deserved recognition!
Jason will be featured in City & State’s August 10 issue.
