THREE KINGS WILL VISIT BRONX CHILDREN
Bronx Borough President Rubén Díaz, Jr., New York State Senator Rev. Rubén Díaz, Assemblyman Marcos Crespo, Affinity Health Plan and the New York Hispanic Clergy Organization, will be celebrating the visit of the Three Kings. The first 1000 children, between the ages of 1 and 9 years of age, will receive a free gift.
