Sponsor a Meal for Families around the City

The Reality

Nearly 3.1 million New Yorkers experience difficulty affording food for themselves and their families, an increase of 55% since 2003," according to the Food Bank of New York City. So many aren’t sure where their next meal will come from.

More than 399,000 children are experiencing food insecurity. The food insecurity rate among New York City’s children, 22.3%, was even higher, (Adults at 16.4%) with nearly one in four experiencing
food insecurity.

The Opportunity

A Box of Love® helps share God’s love and deliver urgently needed food to 4,700 families so they won’t go hungry on Thanksgiving. For every $41.40 you give, it provide a Box of Love® with an abundance of holiday food, more than enough to feed a family of six.

Thank your Elders

In the spirit of the season, Little Brothers - Friends of the Elderly are inviting volunteers to give back and thank our elderly neighbors for what they have contributed to our community over decades. These holiday in-home visits are also a good way to listen to isolated elders in need
of companionship, to travel back in time, and to cheer them up with a gift bag filled with flowers and goodies.

Tuesday November 21st, 10am-Noon Little Brothers have their annual Thanksgiving outreach, making individual gift bags deliveries (with flowers, food items, personal care items, 1 gift item for caregivers) and holiday in-home visits to 50 isolated elders in central Brooklyn.

They are looking for an additional 18 holiday visitors and 6 drivers to make our annual Thanksgiving outreach a memorable one for our elderly
