Gardening Day at Fordham Village


Blossoms bloom and barbecue in the Bronx!

To commemorate Armed Forces Day on Saturday, May 17th, volunteers from Goldman Sachs’ Community TeamWorks program participated in a day of gardening at our Fordham Village residence. Participants – Jericho veterans and Goldman employees along with their family and friends – enjoyed a day of weeding, planting, and beautifying our Fordham garden to bring in the summer months. Afterwards, volunteers enjoyed a scrumptious barbecue of burgers and hotdogs with all the fixins’. Lastly, a brief tour of our veterans’ residence was offered to those that still had a bit of energy to spare. This gave our helpful gardeners an opportunity to see where their hard work was going to. Thank you Goldman for helping Jericho provide a safe, peaceful, and beautiful environment for our residents to enjoy!
