Thanksgiving with The Misson

Thanksgiving with The Misson

December 4, 2016

Thanksgiving is an amazing time of year, but the guarantee of a Thanksgiving meal should never be taken for granted. This year we teamed up with The Bowery Mission, one of New York City’s most effective results-oriented organizations which recognizes that for some, finding the next meal is a daily challenge. 

On one of the busiest days of the year, we had the privilege of supplying 50 lbs of coffee to over 7,800 men, women and children from all five boroughs of New York. Over 1700 meals were served every hour on the hour from 8:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. at The Missions’ 227 Bowery flagship location.

For The Mission, Thanksgiving is a crazy day where a traditional turkey dinner is prepared and served in a century-old chapel filled with music and festive decorations for the holiday. This year was no exception, with over 650 volunteers and a total 7,859 meals.

 There are two things you’ll need on day like this, a hot cup of coffee for warmth and most importantly that caffeinated rush for energy. We are proud to have been able to provide both to so many people. Here’s a video to see the big day. To donate or get involved with The Bowery Mission check out their website https://www.bowery.org/
