Bronx, NY, September 5, 2017 -- With the advent of Hurricane Harvey, thousands have been left homeless (including children). Supermarkets have been emptied out due to high demand. Bronx Jiu-Jitsu has partnered up with local parent AshleyAnn Capozzoli to help raise money to be donated to the victims of Hurricane Harvey.
Ashley's son Ayden has been attending Bronx Jiu-Jitsu for a few years now. Having experienced what is like to lose everything first hand, Ashley Capozzoli knows what its like having to start over. Ashley & her family lost everything during a fire in their home back in December 2015 during the holidays. Justine Restrepo an employee at Bronx Jiu Jitsu at the time, organized a collection for the Capozzoli family. Bronx Jiu-Jitsu and it's members donated clothing & toys to the Capozzoli family during this time. Volunteering and helping others is a big part of Ashley's life.
