THANKSGIVING FOOD DRIVE

November 10, 2014 - November 20, 2014

IN A CITY AS WEALTHY AS NEW YORK IT IS UNIMAGINABLE THAT 1 IN EVERY 5 FAMILIES ARE FOOD INSECURE.  OVER  1.4 MILLION NEW YORKERS RELY ON FOOD PANTRIES AND SOUP KITCHENS TO STAVE OFF HUNGER.  OVER 400,000 OF THESE ARE CHILDREN, AND ANOTHER 95,000 ARE VETERANS. WE ARE HAVING A QUIET CRISIS.

EVERY YEAR THE RED BALLOON HAS A FOOD DRIVE AND BRINGS OUR DONATIONS TO ST. MARY’S CHURCH.  PLEASE GIVE CANNED GOODS IE. SOUP,  VEGETABLES, BEANS, AS WELL AS PASTA, PASTA SAUCE, RICE, PEANUT BUTTER, JELLY, DRYED BEANS, TUNA FISH, CRACKERS, ETC.

WE WILL PUT OUT CRATES AND WE HOPE YOU CAN FILL THEM UP.  DONATIONS ARE DUE BY NOVEMBER 20TH TO BE DELIVERED NOVEMBER 21ST.  LET’S DO WHAT WE CAN AND SHOW OUR CHILDREN THE SPIRIT OF GIVING!
