Monday Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. hosted a park clean up to kick off his new #MeaningfulMonday community service initiative at Soundview Park in The Bronx. Each Monday a different Bronx park will be chosen for a #MeaningfulMonday clean up.
The event aims to promote volunteerism, civic engagement and neighborhood pride among Bronx communities.
Borough President Diaz is partnered with the New York City Parks Department and the Friends of Soundview Park.
