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 2021 WILL BE DIFFERENT

GOBBLE GOBBLE GIVE NYC 2021 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 2021, but it will look very different. There will be no hot meals this year.  We will only collect and distribute donations. Our primary collection focus will be TOYS!

We will have volunteer teams accepting donations at The Church of the Intercession, and The Apollo Theater, in Harlem. You can drop off donations at either location. Because of the pandemic, we cannot have volunteer shifts this year. Please register below to DROP OFF DONATIONS on Thanksgiving Day. A small vaccinated team in masks & gloves will be standing outside both venues accepting donations. We ask that you register to drop off at a specific time, so there are never too many people arriving at one time.
