A donation of just $25 provides turkeys for two families. With approximately 200,000 Westchester residents hungry or at risk of being hungry, there is a significant need for meals this holiday season. Last year the Food Bank exceeded its fund raising goal and was able to provide more than 4,000 turkeys.
The Food Bank for Westchester supplies agencies across the county including Shiloh Baptist Church, Union Baptist Church and OASIS in New Rochelle.
“As a community, it is important that we collect as many donations as possible to help out local families and to ensure a memorable Thanksgiving for those who would otherwise go without,” said Ellen Lynch, Food Bank Executive Director. “Thanks to everyone who supports our holiday turkey drive, a huge burden is lifted off these families’ shoulders.”
