Doing Good Together/NY has received a generous grant from GenerationOn with support from the Walt Disney Company. We will be sponsoring a fun and meaningful service event for Family Volunteer Day, in conjunction with the West Side Campaign Against Hunger Interfaith Coalition and their Thousand Turkey Challenge Kick-off event. Families are welcome to visit WSCAH to learn more about their supermarket-style food pantry. All participating families are asked to bring a frozen turkey to donate to The Thousand Turkey Challenge (or donate $18, the price of one turkey). There is a Gristedes market next door to WSCAH so you can purchase your turkey on your way to the event. A representative of WSCAH will speak to our group and provide tours of the pantry. We will have arts and crafts projects for the children; recipe sharing for the adults; snacks, refreshments and other surprises. We will also be creating toiletry kits for food pantry clients. Please consider bringing any travel-sized toiletry items you may have at home, or purchase some to donate to this project.
Please note: If you cannot attend the Family Volunteer Day event on 11/20, please still consider donating a frozen turkey to WSCAH for the Thousand Turkey Challenge. You can bring your turkeys on Mondayand Tuesday, November 21 and 22, from 9am – 8pm and Wednesday, November 23 from 9am – 1pm. FROZEN TURKEYS ONLY. You can also donate online or Text TURKEY to 77948 on your smartphone ($18 per turkey).
