In Brooklyn, our property management team at Marcus Garvey Apartments partnered with the Tenants Association to give away 100 turkeys with fixings, including green beans, cranberry sauce, gravy and stuffing. They also worked with the Brownsville Community Justice Center, one of our 2019 Grantees, to distribute an additional 65 turkeys. Over at Arverne View in Queens, our team hosted a special Thanksgiving lunch for senior residents and delivered 100 turkeys to families living at the property. Our team distributed 50 turkeys at Impac Houses in Harlem and another 90 turkeys at our Baychester and Murphy properties in the Bronx.
Meanwhile, across the river in New Jersey, the Grassroots Community Foundation worked with our team at Georgia King Village to deliver almost 120 turkeys and sides to residents. And at Zion Towers, the Cipher Foundation delivered more than 130 turkeys to residents with sides, including potatoes, stuffing mix, corn, cranberry sauce and apple pie.
In addition to these efforts, a dedicated team of volunteers from L+M and C+C packed hundreds of Thanksgiving meals for families in need across the City as part of FeedingNYC’s annual initiative.
Thank you to all those who came together and contributed their time and resources to deliver Thanksgiving meals. We hope that all our residents, partners and team continue to have a joy-filled festive season!
