Thank you again for your participation in NYSUT’s Annual Food Drive, and especially to all the Coordinators for your help in running the Drive. We raised a total of $42,572.93 and collected 61,870 pounds of food for the Food Bank for Westchester, People to People, Inc, in Rockland County, and other local food banks in Westchester, Putnam, Rockland and Orange Counties! We could not have done this without you!
What we have accomplished is so extraordinary that it almost cannot be believed. Thirty tons of food and enough money to purchase another thirty tons of food!! On behalf of all those for whom hunger is an unconscionable way of life, we who organize this food drive every year, thank you again and again. Truly important work that was needed and wanted was done here.
Attached is the FINAL REPORT for the 2011-12 Food Drive. Please share these results with your members and thank them again for their generosity.
