2,000 HOLIDAY MEALS
December 12, 2010
WHO & WHAT:
More than 400 volunteers from all over the
New York metropolitan area, including
members of the St. John's University
community, will pack toys and food for the
13th annual St. John's Bread and Life
The effort provides 5,500
new, unwrapped toys for children (an
increase from last year's 4,500).
Participating parents selected toys for
their children from computer kiosks at the
soup kitchen used regularly for the
selection of food items. In addition to
toys, each pre-registered family will
receive a turkey, vegetables, stuffing,
soup, fruit, bread and dessert.
Packages will be distributed during the week
of December 13th.
St. John's Bread and Life, Brooklyn's
largest soup kitchen, serves more than 2,000
hot meals daily. Its Mobile Soup Kitchen
provides an additional 500 hot meals to
people in two Brooklyn and Queens
neighborhoods. In addition, the agency
provides an array of social services.
