I’m desperate, which is why I’m sending this email to everyone I know.
Four years ago, we started a soup kitchen and food pantry. We never envisioned what would happen, but every month more and more people keep coming to us for food. Last week our City Councilman invited me to testify before the Council about the increasingly dire situation faced by hungry people in our community.
I need your help, and I’m asking you to do two things. Please make a Thanksgiving donation to Greenpoint’s pantry and kitchen. No gift is too small – we can do a lot with $10 and a lot more with $100. We’re able to buy food at a reduced cost from the NY Food Bank, so we leverage every dollar donated to us. Second, please help spread the word and forward this message to five friends asking them to donate a few bucks. If everyone gives a little, we can do so much.
We’re aren’t a large non-profit. We don’t have a fancy building or shiny equipment. You can be assured that your donation goes directly to help people who would otherwise fall through the cracks of our society. Along with helping people, you also have the benefit of your donation being tax-deductable.
You can make a one-time donation via PayPal here or you can sign up to give monthly via our website. If you’re not into online giving, you can send a check to: Greenpoint Church Soup Kitchen and Food Pantry 136 Milton St. Brooklyn, NY 11222
Thank you so much for your help! Feel free to email me or call if you have any thoughts or questions.
