A year ago the Blumberg family of Edgemont organized a successful community event - the goal to involve residents of Greenburgh in packaging and distributing 1,000,000 meals to families in need all over the world by 2028.
Over 800 RESIDENTS PACKAGED 130,000 MEALS FOR THE HUNGRY IN EDGEMONT AND ARDSLEY THIS PAST WEEKEND
A year ago the Blumberg family of Edgemont organized a successful community event - the goal to involve residents of Greenburgh in packaging and distributing 1,000,000 meals to families in need all over the world by 2028. They are partnering with Rise Against Hunger and other local organizations.
This past weekend hundreds of residents volunteered their time making a difference in the lives of people who are less fortunate. In Ardsley alone over 500 adults and children (some in pre school) showed up at the Concord Road school helping out. The Ardsley PTA deserves our praise for their efforts helping to find volunteers. On Saturday over 300 of volunteers packed meals at the Greenville school in Edgemont. I stopped by on both days and was impressed by how hard the volunteers were working. Passionate about the cause they were involved in, almost all the volunteers I observed were working non stop preparing meals. Many children came with their parents -a great way for parents and children to participate together in an important cause.
Over 60,000 meals were packaged in Edgemont and 70,000 meals packaged in Ardsley.
The Million Meal Project welcomes any local organizations and families to participate by co-hosting events throughout the year or joining for larger events. The organization will also be donating $0.38 per meal packaged. Donations are welcome at any of the meal packaging events as well as on the Million Meal Project’s website. For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are discouraged about all the bad news in the world - this initiative will restore your faith in the goodness of many people in our community.
