What We Are Doing



With the most vulnerable people urged not to go out, even for groceries, many of our neighbors do not have a safe way to get food. In response, One Community organized a coalition of 22 partner organizations to distribute groceries. Each week over 60 volunteers bring food to seniors and other vulnerable people who live in public housing and other low-income housing.

The 209 households served on March 27 has grown to 1,000. 


Major funding provided by New York City Council Majority Leader Laurie A. Cumbo, the Robin Hood Foundation, Brooklyn for Life!, Curtis Cravens, MADDD Equities, the Society for Clinton Hill, Peter Grossman and Sarah Weir and James Cohan.

20 middle school students from the Dr. Susan S. McKinney Secondary School for the Arts are special guests at Pratt Institute’s annual Research Open House.


The Trailblazers are guided through Pratt student and faculty’s cutting-edge work in robotics, visual reality, augmented reality, sustainability, fashion, graphic design, architecture, art, urban planning etc., and attend a special luncheon. They receive certificates recognizing them as Pratt McKinney Trailblazers, confirming that they are “college material.”


In addition to academic achievement, the McKinney students are chosen for attendance, effort, contributions to the school or larger community, overcoming a personal challenge, athletic achievement, and other triumphs so all can aspire to be Pratt McKinney Trailblazers.
