Call for Food Donations-Thanksgiving in El Barrio (NYC)

Call for Food Donations (Thanksgiving) 

El Museo del Barrio and Comité Noviembre have partnered up to host the 16th
Annual Day of Community Service & Social Responsibility, taking place on
Sunday, November 21, 2010. On this day, we will distribute food care packages to
75 pre-selected underserved families from El Barrio at El Museo’s El Taller in anticipation of the Thanksgiving holiday. 

We are currently collecting food donations for qualifying families, and hope
you’ll help us support this wonderful cause by donating canned foods or other
non-perishable items.

Donations can be dropped off at El Museo’s office before
Friday, November 19, located on the 3rd floor of 1230 5th Avenue at 104th
Street. Hours are Monday-Friday, 10:00am-5:00pm.
