Hispanic Federation Kicks Off Food Drive

HARTFORD — The Hispanic Federation has kicked off its Thanksgiving Food Drive to support nine food pantries operated by member agencies in NYC and Long Island.

For 3 weeks, the Partners on the Go van will stop at different locations to pick-up canned food collected by employee associations, clubs and individuals. You will be able to follow the “Partners” van route and collection totals through daily updates, videos and photos that will be posted on the HF website, YouTube and Facebook pages.

To help bring relieve to those who need it most, organizations can become a collection site for our Partners on the Go Anti-Hunger Campaign. To learn more about this initiative or schedule a pick-up, please contact Lucia Perez Bernhardt at 212-233-8955 or by e-mail lbernhardt@hispanicfederation.org.
