The Community Fund offers a unique lens into the needs among our residents that would otherwise be overlooked and is steadfast in addressing the most pressing causes that impact everyone from our youth to our elders, and those in between.” Denning continued, “I’m proud to be helping to lead such an organization because it epitomizes our residents’ commitment to giving back and to ensuring that the Bronxville, Eastchester and Tuckahoe remain close knit communities that support one another and make this such a special place to live. I am thrilled to be part of this effort and look forward to kicking off our campaign.”
