A year into the pandemic, we have just crossed an important milestone: We just provided our 100,000th hunger relief package to New York City’s families affected by food insecurity. And that was due in large part to the generosity of so many of you. Thank you for giving this important gift to our community!

Your support helps people like Marlin and her 4-year-old son Aidan, who live in Staten Island (pictured above). Aidan has special needs and receives medical support from Children’s Aid, but like so many New Yorkers, the pandemic placed extra pressure on the family. Marlin lost her job because of the pandemic, and could no longer afford food for her and her son.

With your support, her case worker was able to deliver hunger relief packages directly to their home so they could survive the difficult months and avoid prolonged periods of hunger. Today, Marlin thankfully has a steadier source of income, and hunger is no longer an issue.

Thank you again for helping people just like Marlin and Aidan who face the prospect of going to bed hungry tonight. We appreciate your generosity as our communities recover from the COVID-19 crisis, and will continue to provide relief to more New York City families in need.

P.S. Please also be sure to look out for emails next week about our GlobalGiving match campaign.
