Four pallets of boxes loaded with food supplies to the elderly residents of the Council Towers VII at Coop-City were provided by the Met Council of New York. The boxes of food had to be brought inside so Councilman Andy King and Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. lent a helping hand to Residence Director Maryanne Pasquariello. In no time the four pallets of boxes were brought into the empty community room for the staff to distribute them to the residents of Council Towers. 

Four pallets of boxes of food were dropped outside 777 Coop-City Boulevard AKA Council Towers VII.

The boxes of food were then brought inside the building to be distributed by the staff to the senior residents, 

During a break Councilman King and Bronx BP Diaz Jr. chatted about their futures as both are term limited out of their current offices January 1, 2022.
