Diwali, the Festival of Lights, celebrates good defeating evil, knowledge over ignorance, and the victory of light over darkness. COPCP was honored to take part in several celebrations throughout the community. Including the Diwali Motorcade, where we provided security, and the Queens Borough President’s celebration, where many community members were honored for their meaningful contributions. We also joined Bhavaanee Maa Mandir, Inc., BACDYS, local organizations, and businesses to distribute hot food and sweets. Thank you, Pundit Krishna, for organizing the distribution event for the community. We must share customs and traditions to enhance understanding and support diversity. We wish you warmth, love, and light this Diwali and all year.
