Holiday Meal Program
We want to thank you all for your tremendous response to our Holiday Dinner Program appeals at Thanksgiving and throughout December. You have probably read that we impacted approximately 3700 people during Thanksgiving. During the winter holidays, we gave supermarket gift cards and monetary donations to 18 different organizations with similar impact. We did it with great meaning and we did it safely. Your contributions were appreciated immensely by all the recipients. Hopefully, next year we will be able to gather and cook together like years past. We are still collecting supermarket gift cards because food insecurity continues unabated. For the month of January if you would like to donate gift cards, please contact Wendi Silverman here.
Helping our Neighbors During Covid: Immediate Needs
We are preparing to partner with our neighbors and with organizations to help feed families who are respecting quarantine requirements as a result of Covid exposure. Neighbors Link has asked for our 'team' to provide groceries for a growing number of families who have been identified as needing food assistance. This might entail purchasing food items from a standardized list of items and delivering, or may entail ordering the food from a local provider and having it delivered, or some other efficient means of having the needed food presented to the family. We will of course abide by all COVID protocols, meaning there will not be any person to person direct contact. Would you like to be part of our CPR team, Comida Procurement Resource team? Are you aware of any neighbors who are also in quarantine and need our assistance, help like this? We have plenty of experience helping safely and efficiently and without contact! Please respond to Opportunitytohelp@gmail.com or Wendi Silverman. Thank you. Please contact Wendi Silverman here and Opportunitytohelp@gmail.com here.
Sandwich Assistance Program
Some of you are aware that we have been making sandwiches for a shelter in Yonkers over the last eight months. We are well over the 11,300 mark! We continue to need people to help make sandwiches, and then we need people to pickup and deliver those sandwiches. Again, we do all of this without contact. If you would like to learn more please respond to Wendi Silverman here. Thank you all for all your help!
