Honoree: Founded on October 23, 1946, by the late Reverend Jeremiah Crawford, Union Grove Missionary Baptist Church (UGMBC) has served thousands of New Yorkers of all backgrounds, age and race. From a membership of 13 at its original location at 221 East 98th Street, UGMBC has grown into one of the most respected members of the community in the Bronx, where they currently operate at 1488 Hoe Avenue, and the City. Currently under the leadership of Reverend Frederick Crawford, the third generation of the Crawford family to pastor at UGMBC, Union Grove continues to carry out many of the community service programming created under Rev. Jeremiah Crawford. Leaned upon by community leaders and elected officials alike, UGMBC has served as a critical partner to enhance the quality of life of New Yorkers. UGMBC’s congregants have spearheaded numerous volunteer opportunities to serve the community beyond the walls of the parish. For those less fortunate, UGMBC runs food distribution programs and organizes an annual winter coat program that collects warm clothing to distribute to members of the community. During the warmer months, UGMBC organizes outdoor community events to give neighborhood youth a safe place to enjoy and play. (Salamanca)
