The Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. said, “life’s most persistent and urgent question is ‘what are you doing for others?’”
At Catholic Charities, we have an answer. Our Martin Luther King Jr. Interfaith Day of Service pulls together a small army of volunteers and staff to help feed the hungry. Today we are unloading 30,000 pounds of food donated by Goya to stock food pantries in Harlem, Washington Heights, the South Bronx, Staten Island, Brooklyn and Kingston.
With 1 out of 5 New Yorkers now depending on aid for food, our food pantries have never been so strained. This donation of food by Goya and time by volunteers makes a huge difference helping us feed our hungry neighbors.
“What are you doing for others?” Rev. King asked.
