Posted: Updated:
THE BRONX -

One Bronx-based business is giving back to the community with its annual winter clothing and food drive.

El Maestro Inc., a social and cultural center located on Southern Boulevard in the Bronx, has collected dozens of boxed and canned goods along with sweaters, jackets and other donations over the course of November.

Sunday marked the last day of drive, during which people were welcomed to come in and pick up whatever they needed.

Volunteers were also serving hot food to visitors.

Organizers say the drive has helped dozens of people in the community.
