WHAT IS GOBBLE GOBBLE GIVE NYC?

WHAT IS GOBBLE GOBBLE GIVE NYC?

On Thanksgiving morning, New Yorkers will come together to deliver donations to people in need all over the city. What started with a few people handing out meals in 2009, has grown to 850 volunteers, 3600 meals, and thousands of care packages delivered in 2019.  Join us on Thanksgiving Day to ensure the spirit and tradition of the holiday is shared with the less fortunate.

GOBBLE GOBBLE GIVE NYC 2020 WILL BE DIFFERENT

GOBBLE GOBBLE GIVE NYC 2020 WILL BE DIFFERENT

Unfortunately, there is no way to safely have our large volunteer meal & donation delivery event this year. But New Yorkers need our help more than ever before.  Homelessness in New York City has reached the highest levels since the Great Depression.  We will have an event in 2020, but it will look very different. There will be no hot meals this year.  We will only collect and distribute donations.

WE HAVE A NEW LOCATION: APOLLO THEATER, IN HARLEM

WE HAVE A NEW LOCATION: APOLLO THEATER, IN HARLEM

We will meet at a new location: the Apollo Theater, in Harlem. There will not be volunteer shifts this year.  We ask that everyone register for a time to DROP OFF DONATIONS.  A small team (in masks & gloves) will be standing outside the Apollo Theater accepting donations on Thanksgiving Day, 8am – 12:30pm.  You can register to drop off donations at the time you choose.  We are asking that you sign up for a specific time so there are never too many people arriving at one time

STRICT SAFETY PROTOCOLS

STRICT SAFETY PROTOCOLS

We will follow strict safety protocols. Everyone onsite will be required to wear masks and gloves and stay 6 feet apart.  We will have Curbside Contactless Donation Drop Off:

  • If dropping off donations in a vehicle:  You can stay in your vehicle! Arrive with donations in your trunk. Volunteers will be standing by outside when you arrive.  We can take the donations out of your trunk. 
  • If dropping off donations on foot: We will have clearly marked Donation Stations set up outside, in front of the theater. You can just set the donations on the table at the Donation Station. Volunteers will be standing by to receive your donations and prepare them for delivery.
