- I have never been into structured dance…probably because I have two left feet :-)!That said, as an adolescent, my mom marched my siblings & I over to the Police Athletic League on Webster Avenue in Bronx & enrolled us in sports and the arts Thanks to the PAL, I can not only plie, I can do a roundhouse kick if push came to shove…LOL :-D!
Recent events have put the importance of community policing on front pages & television screens. As a kid in the boogie down Bronx, I equated community policing with officer community service and that meant the PAL.
This Memorial Day, we are honoring veterans by donating 10% of our proceeds to the PAL because many military veterans become police officers and also volunteer in the communities that they serve & protect. #WithoutThePAL & tell us how the PAL impacted you. Also, share your reflections of the veterans that you know and love.

- FraMiATi Outreach
A. FraMiATi continued its commitment to community in 2015. We returned to the Young Women’s Leadership School and visited Passages Academy-Bronx Hope for the first time. At Passages Academy, our hand spa was a big hit with both the youngsters and adults – especially our lavender citrus & limoncello body scrubs ! It was a joy seeing many of the young men and male staff members experience the exfoliating effects of a body scrub for first time ! We are especially grateful for Crystal’s assistance. Crystal is a youngster who is naturally gifted in customer service and engagement. We wish all the students much success in whatever career path they choose.
B. Got a Career Day that you’d like us to attend? Contact us to request our participation.
