Hope you had a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, or at least a solid run of mental days off this past week. Thanks to everybody who participated in Christmas Club this year, we’ve raised over $2,000 for City Harvest, which by their metric will save and deliver over 8,000 POUNDS of food for hungry New Yorkers. (Although it’s not too late to donate!)
This year saw dramatic, record demand for food in New York, and City Harvest is currently at 62% of its 30-30-30 campaign goal – that’s no Herman Cain slogan, they’re celebrating their 30th anniversary by rescuing 30 million pounds of food and raising $30 million! And together we’ve been a part of that. Once the goals are met, the organization will build a brand new facility in Long Island City, and over the coming years double their capacity to a staggering 60 million pounds of food per year.
On a personal note, I must say I was especially thankful that many of you rolled with the spontaneous schedule and calamitous state of my home after a humdinger of a Thanksgiving.
