On the Friday before the Labor Day Holiday State Senator Jamaal Bailey held his Annual Labor Day Barbecue and Book Bag Giveaway. This year however due to COVID-19 Senator Bailey didn't hold a barbecue, but gave away 750 pre-made barbecue meal along with an equal amount of book bags, and other things including an opportunity to fill out the Census 2020 for those who did not fill it out yet.
Senator Bailey's staff (know as 'The Bailey Bunch'), additional volunteers such as those from the Carpenter Contractor Alliance of Metropolitan New York (750 Book Bags), Pepsi (750 drinks), Omars Kitchen NYC (750 Barbecue style meals), Montefiore Medical Center, The U.S. Census, and others helped make this a fun day for everyone.
