CSAIR FIGHTS HUNGER Non-Perishable Food Drive
Sunday, September 26, 10:00 - 11:30 AM

Print Shopping List
 
CSAIR has established a Fight Hunger Initiative that will be sponsoring a variety of food donation drives throughout the year.

Our September Fight Hunger Initiative effort will support families at Broadway Family Plaza, a local facility that provides homes for some 80 families transitioning back to living independently.  Families typically stay for a year.  Their Broadway Family Plaza stay is the final jumping off point to being able to live on their own again.  Besides apartments, the Plaza also provides childcare and housing placement assistance.

The list of needed items includes:

Canned and Dry Goods
Corn
Beans (Note - many of the families would appreciate Goya red, pinto and black beans)
String beans
Carrots
Peas
Bags of rice
Boxes or bags of pasta
Pasta sauce (glass jars are O.K.)
Cereals in individual portions

Baby and Toddler Items
Baby food, including Baby cereal
Dry milk
Formula
Diapers and/or Wipes

We will once again work in partnership with Jess Woolford of Kingsbridge UNIDOS.  The Riverdale Press covered Jess Woolford’s amazing efforts to further support these families.

Many of you may remember our May Father’s Day Gift Drive to benefit the dads who live with their families at the Broadway Family Plaza. CSAIR’s generosity was overwhelming. We brought warmth to the hearts of families - we made a difference!

PLEASE BRING YOUR DONATIONS TO CSAIR’S 250th STREET ENTRANCE ON SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 26th BETWEEN 10AM AND 11:30AM*

Volunteers from CSAIR Fights Hunger Initiative will be there to collect your donations.

 *If you cannot bring your donation on September 26th, please contact Carole Gothelf (Carole@gothelf.net) or Robin Weinstein (robinsweinstein@gmail.com) to make alternate arrangements for delivering the donation.
