Three cheers are in order for the kids over at PS 124, who recently collected and donated over 400 pounds of food to City Harvest. If you’d like to follow their lead, and help ensure that every New Yorker has enough to eat this holiday season (and beyond), non-perishable foods can be dropped off at NYPD and FDNY stations across the city through January 10, 2014.
Here’s a handy list of the stations in our neck of the woods:
78th Precinct: 65 6th Avenue, at Bergen St
Squad Company 1: 788 Union Street, between 6th and 7th Aves
Engine 239: 395 4th Avenue, between 6th and 7th Sts
Engine 220/Ladder 122: 530-532 11th Street, between 7th and 8th Aves
Engine 219: 494 Dean Street, between 6th and Carlton Aves
City Harvest notes that the most helpful donations include canned fruit, canned vegetables, canned proteins like tuna or salmon, macaroni and cheese, plastic jars of peanut butter, and family-sized packages of hot and cold cereal.
