New York Flyers Holiday Food Drive Fundraiser
Eleven years and running stronger than ever!
Eleven years ago, the Flyers determined that part of our club's role as a non-profit community organization includes helping the less fortunate in our city during the winter holiday season. To that end, the first club-wide holiday food drive fundraiser raised over $3000 to provide emergency food assistance to needy New Yorkers. Each year since, the club has continued this tradition, raising over $30,000 over the years for this worthy cause. In 2018, the Flyers are again raising money for City Harvest in order to make the holiday season a little brighter for many who might not otherwise have much to celebrate.
More than 1.2 million New Yorkers, including one in five children, live in poverty. This year, City Harvest will collect 61 million pounds of excess food and deliver it free of charge to hundreds of soup kitchens, food pantries and other community food programs across the five boroughs. By redirecting this nutritious food from supermarkets, manufacturers, farmers markets, and restaurants to our neighbors in need, we can support our local communities and reduce the environmental impact of food that would otherwise go to waste.
Please help us make sure that good food doesn't go to waste when so many people are hungry by donating to this campaign. Together, we can make a difference one day, one meal, and one person at a time.
Every $1 donated helps City Harvest rescue and deliver four pounds of good food. By donating, you’ll help keep City Harvest’s trucks on the road and filled with nutritious food for our neighbors in need.
