Updater Holds 2nd Annual Holiday Food Drive

January 2, 2018 | 11:01am

For the second year in a row, our partners at Updater held a food drive to fight hunger in New York City during the holiday season. 

From November 6-December 11, employees from each department competed to see who could collect the most non-perishable items to help their neighbors in need this winter. Together, Updater's staff donated 600 lbs. of food, diapers, and other supplies!

"Our Move For Hunger food drive is an annual tradition," said Jenna Weinerman, Marketing Manager at Updater and a member of our Board of Directors. "Not only has our food drive become quite competitive within the office, but it also reminds us that little by little, a little becomes a lot. We're so proud to work with Move For Hunger and make a real difference."

Gentle Giant Moving Company of New York once again provided boxes for the collection and volunteered to deliver all of the donations to St. John's Bread and Life Pantry

More than 1.2 million people, including 1 in 5 children, in the five boroughs are food insecure. Thank you to the team at Updater and Gentle Giant for working together to make a difference. 

There are a number of ways to fight hunger in your community. Get started today!
