New York City Mission Society Serves 200+ at

 12th Annual Thanksgiving Harvest Community Dinner

(New York, N.Y.) – Striving to help its program participants and community members get a hot meal and save money for the upcoming holidays, the New York City Mission Society provided more than 200 meals at its 12th Annual Thanksgiving Harvest Community Dinner at Minisink Townhouse on Tuesday, November 17. Mission Society Board Members Jean Shafiroff
Jay Moorhead underwrote the event.

New York City Mission Society Board members, Young Professionals Society members, Kohl’s corporate volunteers, staff, community members, alumni and volunteers served meals to Mission Society’s program participants, families, and area residents.

"Every day, we hear about the hardships that many of our program participants and their families face. This annual event presents an opportunity for us not only to celebrate the season with them, but provide a warm meal that will help them save money to be able to put more food on the table come Thanksgiving,” said Mission Society President Elsie McCabe Thompson. "What made this event even more special was the participation of our Board, and in particular Jean Shafiroff and Jay Moorhead, who are embracing the giving spirit of the season.”

In addition to Ms. Shafiroff and Mr. Moorhead, Board Members Peggy Bader,
Laura Flavin, and Francis Kairson, Jr. served meals alongside Young Professionals Society Co-chairs Cole Rumbough and Brook Laing, and 
Natasha Das, Taylor Burns, and Liz Shafiroff.

Minister Kirsten John Foy blessed the meal, at which attendees were served turkey, stuffing, hearty side dishes, pies and cupcakes, desserts and beverages. Sponsors this year included Whole Foods and Vita Coco.

Students participating in the Mission Society’s G.R.I.O.T. (Global Rhythms in Our Tribe) program treated attendees to a special performance. The free program was recently created in partnership with the Afro Latin Jazz Alliance, founded by Grammy Award-Winning pianist, composer, and educator Arturo O'Farrill, and provides musical instruction to youth.

This year, the Mission Society also continued its tradition of distributing turkeys in advance ofThanksgiving. Donated by St. Francis Food Pantries & Shelters, the turkeys were handed out on Wednesday, November 18, to participants in several Mission Society programs.

“As many of you may know, this year are celebrating 95 years here in Harlem and 50 years – yes, five decades – here at the Minisink Townhouse,” Ms. McCabe Thompson said. “During all of this time – and throughout our more than 200 years of history – we have affected countless lives.

“Our mission has been and always will be to contribute to the well-being of our community. We value kindness, compassion, dignity, respect and excellence. It’s why – as you look around this room – you will see so many familiar faces – people for whom this is not a job but a calling. Tonight is about family and community.”
