Recently, we told you all about J.P. Blase Cooke and his selfless and inspiring contributions to My Brother’s Keeper and the Irvington community he grew up in, knew, and loved. While Blase Cooke is no longer with us physically, his undying spirit and generosity has made it possible for MBK to better serve the less fortunate members of his community for years to come.
