Following the news that Trinity Human Service Center’s Food Pantry was facing severe financial challenges, St Nicks Alliance rallied groups and organizers in the neighborhood to organize a benefit to assist this critical community institution. Trinity, now in its 30th year of operation, has been an anchor serving those in our community who are struggling during this tough economic period, providing housing, clothing, and food. This first annual benefit will honor Alison Cordero with the Unsung Hero award. Alison has worked tirelessly in this neighborhood as a community organizer for over 25 years. She has been the unsung hero to hundreds of people and families. Our community has been Alison’s life work and that work has been her passion as Alison has always gone the extra mile for her clients and colleagues. When someone was in need Alison was there. Whether it was housing, emergency food, or the victims of domestic violence, Alison was ready to lend a hand. As a testament to that commitment, Alison played a key role in the founding of the North Brooklyn Coalition Against Family Violence. Last May, Alison suffered a major stroke; she has incredible strength and is making a remarkable and determined recovery.
Join NAG and the rest of our community in honoring this amazing unsung hero!
