This Thanksgiving will be Operation Cr's 3rd annual canned/boxed food drive to help low-income families experience meals for the holiday season. With the consequences of COVID-19 still occurring and social distancing still taking place, some people may or may not feel comfortable donating canned and/or boxed foods to one of our donation centers throughout New York City and Long Island. Because of this, we wanted to create a GoFundMe page that can be used to purchase more food for those in need this holiday season. Proceeds will be used to purchase food that families can use to fight food insecurity and of course have the pleasure of enjoying a Thanksgiving with their loved ones.
Any amount helps those in need. As much as a couple of dollars alone can be used to provide a family of four with a few meals. On behalf of Operation Cr, it is my hope that you consider giving just a few dollars this holiday season. COVID-19 has led to more people feeling food insecure in New York City and our small acts of giving can be multiplied to do a greater good and help so many people this year. In a holiday season where we have so much to be thankful for, let's demonstrate our thankfulness with what we have by giving to others this year.
