FOR HIS GENEROUS OFFER TO HELP SHIP TOYS TO PEURTO RICO!!!
Every year, The Boys’ Club of New York feeds nearly 200 boys a Thanksgiving Dinner at the Gerry Clubhouse in East Harlem. Last year with the help of community partners and support from individuals, more than 200 families were provided with a turkey and fixings to make their own dinner at home.
This year the drive is aiming to increase the number of families to 400: 250 for Boys Club members’ families and an additional 150 for community residents of El Barrio and South Bronx.
Please join this effort by sponsoring meals for families this Thanksgiving. The meal feeds four people and includes a turkey, a vegetable, a starch, and dessert.
The Second Annual Turkey Drive will take place on Saturday, November 18 from 10:0am - 2:00 pm.
Thanksgiving Dinner is a holiday tradition that our boys and clubhouse staff cherish deeply. With 80 percent of Boys Club members living in lower-income or poverty households, it may be the only Thanksgiving meal they will enjoy. Any contributions you can give to this effort would not only be greatly appreciated but also appropriately recognized.
If you wish to make a donation, please follow this link: https://www.bcny.org/bcny-second-annual-turkey-drive/
Anyone interested in volunteering to go to Puerto Rico, please go to this website and sign up. Flights and accommodations will be arranged and covered. You will only be responsible for having the time off to go. It is a week-long commitment. If you have family in need of assistance, you would be able to help as well as countless other families affected by the hurricane.
