For block association, giving is as basic as BBC

At the BBC Awards on Monday night at Caliente Cab Co. on Seventh Ave. S., the Bedford Barrow Commerce Block Association gave over $10,000 to deserving local community groups and organizations. The contributions are funded from half the proceeds from the association’s street fair. Among those receiving funds were Village Center for Care, Caring Community, Greenwich House Music School and St. Luke’s People With AIDS Supper. Kathy Donaldson, BBC association president, said it’s rare to find a block association that so generously gives to local groups.

“We hope we can set an example and encourage other block associations to do the same,” she said.
