**OBLIGATORY COVID STATEMENT: We, as an organization, acknowledge that if we will be unable to run our Dinner this year traditionally, we will do as we did last year and shall bring our dinner to the streets. We sent our teams of cargo vans out with 1,000 hot turkey meals to our guests in a safe and physically-distanced initiative. We have always adapted and will continue to do so, strengthening our bond with those we assist. **
SHARE's Annual Thanksgiving Dinner for the Homeless is a time-honored tradition in Hastings-on-Hudson, New York where the very first Thanksgiving Dinner for the Homeless was served by area high school students 32 years ago. We act on behalf of those who can't advocate for themselves, those who have doors closed in their faces and those who have lost all but the last remnants of hope.
Each year, we break bread with nearly 800 of our friends – men, women and children - from the streets and from shelters in all five boroughs in New York City and Westchester County. They each look forward to something different, whether it’s the fist-sized jumbo turkey legs, our infamous homemade apple and pumpkin pies, the donated stuffed animals, or the face-painting our littlest guests enjoy so much
Here are some amazing stats to ponder. Over the past 32 years, our kids in SHARE
have prepared and served not only 20,380 pounds of turkey, but also the
following during our monthly outreach programs in NYC:
Nearly 100,000 bagged lunches
26,350 cups of coffee
4,477 hot dogs on the hot dog runs
20,803 cups of soup or chili
We're so incredibly grateful for your support, which is in no small way allowing us to
continue to work with our students and to help those in need, and as always, we
wish you a Thanksgiving filled with peace, happiness and good health, from our
families to yours.
