Thanksgiving in February

We hosted our annual “Thanksgiving in February” last month in the church hall at St. John the Baptist Roman Catholic Church in Manhattan. Why February? Because it’s a time when monetary and in-kind donations have slowed down after the uptick during holiday season. So this event is a big help and a friendly reminder to our clients that they are not forgotten.

“Thanksgiving in February” was sponsored by our friends at Macy’s and ConEd, who collectively sent dozens of volunteers to help serve food to about 500 people in need. Our guests mostly consisted of St. John’s Bread of Life Food Pantry and the Grandparents Advocacy Project. In addition to a hearty and delicious Thanksgiving-style meal, the day is also filled with music and activities for kids of all ages to enjoy. It’s more than just a meal – it’s a communal celebration.

Seeing the goodwill of the holiday season continue long after the actual holidays have come and gone is a wonderful thing. We want to thank everyone who contributed to making this day memorable for all of these grateful families!
