NYC Holiday Events 2018
Gobble Gobble Give NYC:
On Thanksgiving Day, a large group of volunteers, armed with prepared food & donations, will gather at the Church of the Intercession, in Harlem. We will box the warm food into individual containers, sort the donations, & then go out into the community to deliver meals & care packages to New Yorkers in need. What started with a few people handing out meals in 2009, has grown to 750 volunteers & thousands of meals & care packages delivered in 2017. Gobble Gobble Give has become an incredible example of what a community can do to create change.
