In May, New York Knicks’ great man Taj Gibson provided free New York City Authority staff in Brooklyn with free lunches as a thank you for their work during the COVID-19 pandemic.
On Thursday, Howard Miller, a manager of the Taj Gibson Foundation, announced that the thanksgiving program for lunch would be expanded to include “staff in 93 developments in Brooklyn and a couple of developments in Queens until 2021,” according to the NYCHA Journal. .
Miller said on the program last month:
“We thought it would be a good idea to show a small sign of appreciation to NYCHA’s first responders. Ever since it hit COVID, they have been out of strenuous hours of work and we see them because we are part of the community, and many workers are part of community. They were on the front lines and we wanted to do something nice for them. “
Gibson, who is from Brooklyn, is in his first season with the Knicks, averaging 6.1 points and 4.3 rebounds per game.
