Surprising ways you can help hungry New Yorkers

November 28, 2023 12:30 am


Surprising ways you can help hungry New Yorkers in need: Despite living in a city of immense wealth, more than a million New Yorkers are going hungry or can’t regularly get healthy, affordable food. Families must choose between paying their bills and buying food. Thankfully, there are effective nonprofit organizations throughout our region dedicated to fighting hunger. And these groups do this work every day in innovative and unexpected ways. They’ve turned the lawns of public housing into farms yielding tons of produce, they’ve put food pantries on wheels to drive to neighborhoods disconnected from city transit, and they’ve mobilized community volunteers to deliver food to thousands of home-bound people. But this work can’t happen without donors like you. This giving season, learn about how you connect with these nonprofits to give back and share your bounty, today and for future generations. As the region’s community foundation, The New York Community Trust is a resource for those who want to magnify the impact of their giving. We’ll hear from a donor who’s used The Trust to amplify her family’s giving, and we’ll touch on some smart and surprising ways you can turn your assets into a force for good. We’ll also share stories about donors who cared deeply about those in need and how we’re carrying out their charitable legacies. Join New York Community Trust donors and staff for this special Giving Tuesday webinar. You’ll hear from President Amy Freitag, Donor Anna Levin, Deputy Vice President for Grants Irfan Hasan, and Program Officer Chantella Mitchell. There will be ample time for questions as well. Please join us and share with those who may be interested!
