We believe we are accountable to the communities we operate and live in. This approach strengthens relationships, minds and helps support initiatives dear to us. At Crosstown Solutions, we aim to touch people’s lives positively and contribute to a better future. To achieve this, we consciously engage in fundraising, philanthropic work, and many give-back initiatives to practice our philanthropy principles.
All our team members love getting involved for the intangible benefits these initiatives offer. It makes them realize the feeling of being a part of the larger society and delivers a sense of satisfaction of influencing the world to make it a better place. These initiatives also foster camaraderie within our team members and make them humble, making our culture better. We believe such encouragement helps raise awareness.
Here are some of the organizations that we are associated with:
Triple J Farm:
Triple J Farm is a multi-generational black-owned establishment in Windsor, New York. The organization is focused on having a completely free and clean environment for their animals to thrive in. All their animals are locally grown and the company services all of NYC from farm to table. The company uses its resources to raise a standard for our future generations.
NYCHA (New York City Housing Authority) Marcy Houses Community Toy Drive:
The COVID-19 pandemic has brought unprecedented hardships for many New Yorkers, including NYCHA residents. In these trying times, access to food has been the most basic need that residents request help with. NYCHA, City agencies, non-profit partners, residents, and elected officials have been helping residents experiencing food insecurity with sponsored hot meals and grocery boxes throughout the city. We have joined hands with this initiative to further its mission.

More than half of Nigeria’s 7 9 million children between the ages of 5 to 17 are forced to put their innocence and childhood on hold and are put to work. Football, or American Soccer, is one of the few outlets Nigerian youth have to unwind from daily street hustle and obligations. With limited access to safe playing conditions, equipment, and even adequate hydration, they are further faced with risk during a time of leisure and play.
Generations Nigeria is a field-building initiative dedicated to providing Nigerian boys and girls with a safe playing environment where they can thrive. Access to simple playing fields fulfills the basic right that all children are entitled to playtime.
33% of open spaces are claimed by street gangs known as “Area Boys” who demand a fee for playtime
51% of Nigerian children are engaged in child labor
66% of Nigerian youth live in an urbanized environment with unsafe playing conditions
