The Salvation Army has been providing Thanksgiving dinner to the hungry, homeless, poor, and lonely for more than a century. In fact, our largest annual sit-down meal is believed to be the oldest Thanksgiving dinner for those in need in New York City – if not the entire country.
The Salvation Army Greater New York Division serves thousands of Thanksgiving dinners each year. Last year, over 15,000 hungry people in the Greater New York area received a Thanksgiving meal from The Salvation Army – part of our year round total of over 2.7 million meals served.
In addition to sit-down dinners, our Thanksgiving meal program in the Greater New York area includes the distribution of food baskets and turkeys, and the delivery of meals to the homebound.
But it’s not enough! There are too many adults and children in our area still going hungry on Thanksgiving – and beyond. To give more people in need the holiday meal they deserve, and our continued assistance throughout the year, we need your help! Your donation’s impact goes well beyond food. It’s life-changing.
The cost for Thanksgiving dinner is approximately $12 per meal. For $1,200, 100 hungry adults or children can enjoy an entire Thanksgiving dinner with all the trimmings.
Can we count on you to help us at this very special time of year?
