THE BRONX - The Albanian population in The Bronx marked what would have been Mother Teresa's 102nd birthday by giving back to the community over the weekend.

Dozens of people joined Councilman Jimmy Vacca (D-The Bronx) to donate nonperishable foods to the Pelham Parkway Food Bank.

Volunteers say they don't want the spreading of Mother Teresa's message to end with her birthday and encourage everyone to give to local food banks all year.
