Thanksgiving Food Drive

We’re asking Vanguard residents to help provide food to families less fortunate.

In partnership with the Lions Club International, we’ll be collecting canned foods, and other items, to help support Thanksgiving pantries.

The homeless and poverty statistics (as of September 2016) recorded over 15,000 families lodging nightly in NYC shelters. And 40% of those standing in soup kitchen lines – 2 out of 5 – are children.

There is now a box in the lobby for contributions. (Please donate before Monday the 21st, as boxes will be collected then.)

The Lions Club is asking for:

  • Cereal
  • Boxed milk
  • 15oz Canned, Non-Perishable Items
  • 5oz Cans (Chicken or Tuna)
  • 1 liter Juices
  • Peanut Butter

As well as:

  • Toilet Paper
  • Shampoo
  • Body Wash
  • Soap
  • Baby Wipes
  • Diapers
  • Jars of Baby food
  • Infamil
  • Baby rice cereal

Thank you for helping make other families’ Thanksgiving brighter!
