I’m out of pocket all day but thought this was worthy of a re-post:
I’m generally resistant to blog about such topics here on TrueGotham because everyone has their own charitable organizations that they support. That said, the couple of times I have chosen to do so, I have been delighted by the generosity of my readers. So here goes…
TODAY is City Harvest’s Annual Skip Lunch Fight Hunger! City Harvest looks to shatter the ONE DAY fund-raising record of $465,000 last year!!!
Each year City Harvest trucks pick up and deliver food throughout NYC providing hundreds of thousands of meals for NYC’s hungry children.
Here’s how effective Skip Lunch Fight Hunger is:
* Nearly 350,000 children in NYC don’t have enough to eat.
* $5 provides 4 children with lunch for an entire week!
* $10 provides 2 children with lunch for an entire month!
* $25 provides 2 children with lunch for the entire summer!
So just for today City Harvest’s Skip Lunch Fight Hunger program asks everyone to Skip Lunch and donate that money to help fight hunger in NYC. A better idea…eat lunch and donate generously anyway?
Here are just some of the Faces of Hunger in NYC.
A little goes a VERY long way and no donation is too small or too big!
