HELP ME RAISE $22,200 FOR 26,200 MEALS
Hi All -
Almost five years ago I was introduced to the New York Common Pantry by Margie Sung. I was told that a junior board was being formed and they were looking for motivated, millennials (yea...I used that word) to join and participate in supporting the pantry's mission. If anyone knows Margie you quickly understand that "no" is not an acceptable answer. Upon my first time volunteering I learned why many people consider NYCP such a special place. The energy and kindness the staff show is contagious and inspire you to do your part. Five years later and a new community of friends and family I now co-chair the junior board with my amazing partner Eve Michael and am on a mission to support this incredible organization.
Help me support NYCP in raising funds for those in need. My goal to start is $22,200 to provide 26,200 meals. But I'm looking to raise not only more funds - but awareness for an organization that does so much to give back. Any size donation is welcome and look forward to seeing you all on Marathon Day!
On Sunday, November 3, New York Common Pantry (NYCP) will be taking part in the largest marathon of the world to raise awareness about the issue of hunger and food insecurity in our city. NYCP is proud to be a 2019 TCS New York City Marathon Charity Partner and looks forward to using this opportunity to further our mission of promoting dignity, health and self-sufficiency for the people we serve.
Founded in 1980, NYCP is one of New York City’s largest community based food pantries supplying innovative emergency food provisions, offering meals and support to nearly 500,000 New Yorkers annually. Our programs include grocery distribution, nutrition education, and other comprehensive case management services so that the men, women, and families that come to us for help can lead full, self-sustaining lives.
