Best of the Bronx: Design company helps celebrate holidays in Morrisania

MORRISANIA -

Grandparents caring for children at a building in Morrisania are getting some help celebrating the holidays.

The Grandparent Family Apartments received a 10-foot tree as a gift this Christmas. The tree and other decorations were donated by design company Urban Holiday.

"You have these grandparents that are heroes to their grandchildren," says Joe Cuozzo, president of Urban Holiday. "You have this organization that's helping them. So it just seemed like the right thing to do and it's that time of year."

Residents of the building contacted Urban Holiday for help with their decorations after watching a profile on the company News 12 aired a couple of months ago.

Residents will be gathering over the next few days to decorate the tree. They say the added decorations will make the holiday even more special.
