To “reflect” is to give back.This year, the Gowanus Alliance is calling all local businesses and residents to do just that by participating in a special fundraising activity for a chance to give back to the community as we reflect on the achievements of a remarkable organization whose work has truly transformed our neighborhood. Since 1971, CHiPS have been supporting our community residents in need by organizing clothing drives, women’s shelters, and soup kitchens, feeding more than 200 people daily on many occasions! Many lives continue to be blessed through their work today.

Today’s Shout out we want to give to those who continuously support us. We are thankful for volunteers, Gowanus business owners, public officials, and Gowanus residents who invest their time and energy into work for our community. With Thanksgiving just few days away, we proudly say THANK YOU!
Here is a video of one of the musical performances. When Retrofret has a video from the event posted, we will share it.
