A Brooklyn woman gives back to needy communities and works to provide people with groceries, groceries, and more, especially during these troubled times.
Shaquana Boykin is a community organizer and volunteer for the NYCHA Tenants’ Association, which founded the Clinton Hill Mutual Aid organization to feed hundreds of people affected by the pandemic.
She also works with the Central Brooklyn Food Co-op to provide affordable food to low-income communities.
The Crown Heights native says she wants to do her part to make a difference.
“I love giving back. When you think of community, it’s never about sharing. It’s never about isolating. It’s just about building us, building us up, growing us,” says Boykin.
Looking ahead, Boykin hopes to further fill the gap for communities in need.
