"Back to School Drive" 
Thank You Gramercy Park Neighbors!

A major focus of the GPBA's mission is "to promote the well-being" of our neighbors. Last week we had our First Annual
 Neighbors Helping Neighbors "Back to School Drive," to benefit children mainly from city homeless shelters.


We'd like to thank our Gramercy Park neighbors for their generosity, which made the drive a huge success.
