Regional Food Bank’s Highest Grossing Yearly Appeal to Begin
Guilderland, NY – The Regional Food Bank of Northeastern New York will launch its 38th Annual Holiday Hunger Appeal on Wednesday, November 16th at Crossgates. From November 16 – December 24, shoppers can make monetary donations to the Regional Food Bank as they pass by the Food Bank’s booth located on the lower level of Crossgates near Urban Outfitters. Volunteers will be collecting daily from 10a.m. – 8p.m.
The Holiday Hunger Appeal is the Food Bank’s highest grossing appeal, raising vital funds to feed people in 23 counties of northeastern New York. With inflation and rising food and fuel costs resulting in more and more people turning to emergency food programs for help, the funds raised through this appeal are more important than ever.
Each dollar donated goes a long way toward feeding the hungry, as the Food Bank provides four meals worth of food for every dollar it spends.
Major sponsors of this year’s Appeal include AFLAC New York, Berkshire Bank, Crossgates, Trustco Bank, and MAGIC 590AM/100.5FM.
