Today, New York’s highest rated bus tour has chosen to be apart of something great. On November 22nd, OnBoard Tours and FeedingNYC will share a common goal: to bring smiles to the faces of families in need.
Since 2001, FeedingNYC has provided meals to thousands of families all across New York. November 2011 marks its 10th year of hand delivering door-to-door Thanksgiving boxes; the boxes include food such as turkey, stuffing, vegetables and dessert. The birth of FeedingNYC in 2001 has resulted in more than 20,000 families being fed.
This year FeedingNYC will take place on Tuesday November 22nd at Chelsea Piers, and more than 300 volunteers join the cause to fight hunger. FeedingNYC’s mission is to connect people who want to help their neighbors in need, and OnBoard Tours is honored to partner with them this year. From 6 am- 12 pm, an OnBoard Tours shuttle will be used to take volunteers to the homes of families receiving food.
FeedingNYC is a perfect example of what working together as a community can achieve.
The same shuttles that have been used to take tourists all over the city will help transport volunteers and food. FeedingNYC is a perfect example of what working together as a community can achieve. Each contribution plays a huge part in the success of the event, and every year new partnerships are formed. There is an immense amount of love and effort that goes into organizing the operation, and the generosity of volunteers, sponsors and donators makes the event possible each year.
