Giving back is the new black

During economic hard times people tend to be more generous. Oftentimes when they don’t have a monetary contribution to make they will invest their time by helping those who have a little less than they have. This afternoon the East Harlem CARES coalition will be providing Thanksgiving dinners to families in East Harlem from 12 noon until 5 PM at Holy Rosary Church located at 428 East 119th Street.

If you know of a family that is struggling to make ends meet, be sure to let them know of the many resources available to lend a helping hand this holiday season. If you have a few hours on your hand, drop by and see if your local church or food pantry could use a hand with donations or distributing food to needy families.
