Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of New York virtually rings the New York Stock Exchange Opening Bell on June 22, 2020, honoring the organization’s frontline workers. Roseline Colon, a Group Leader at La Plaza Beacon in Washington Heights, New York, was the NYSE’s Honorary Opening Bell ringer. She is pictured on the background of the NYSE Bell Podium, distributing food to New Yorkers in need during the COVID-19 outbreak.  The La Plaza Beacon program is part of Alianza, a division of Catholic Charities Community Services. 

With the ringing of the Opening Bell, Catholic Charities of New York celebrates and thanks our supporters, volunteers, and staff who come together to provide help and create hope to new Yorkers impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

“At the NYSE, we join millions of others who stand in awe and gratitude of the way people around the world have responded to the COVID-19 crisis - from medical professionals, to workers who ensure our food supply, and those who keep our streets safe. We honor some of those people through our #Gratitude campaign.”
