Holiday Turkeys Distributed Throughout November

Turkey Distribution

We’re distributing 500 holiday turkeys this November, thanks to the GenNx Foundation

During the month of November, our food pantry is making an effort to distribute turkeys to every registered family that wants one for their holiday meal.  This distribution is possible through the GenNx Foundation, which is hosting a holiday turkey drive with the goal of funding 500 turkeys!

With the support of the GenNx Foundation drive and other sources, we anticipate that, by the end of the month, we will have distributed at least 500 turkeys, in addition to roaster chickens and other cooking staples to families enrolled in our food pantry.

In the first week alone, we gave out about 184 turkeys, plus roaster chickens.

Each month, food distributed by our pantry feeds approximately 2,000 people facing food insecurity in the neighborhood of East Harlem.  Learn more about holiday giving opportunities.

GenNx Foundation Donates Laptops

GenNx Foundation Donates Laptops

Children in LSA programs gave a big THANK YOU to the GenNx Foundation.  The Foundation recently donated 10 laptops for our youth programs, which include after school homework help and tutoring and summer programs.  These laptops will be a huge asset to the program, since schools are increasingly assigning work that requires computers, but many of the children that come to LSA for services don’t have access to a computer at home.

In the photos below:  children in our summer youth program took the laptops for a test run during a break from their activities.

On behalf of the children and families that will benefit from the laptops, we offer the GenNx Foundation our heartfelt thanks!
