Play Darts, Have Some Drinks and Help Charity!
By Ilija Sekulovski
Astoria Plays Darts is having their Winter Sign Up event!
There’s going to be drink specials all night, dart sales, and lots of fun Astorians will be swinging by!
They’re also collecting canned food for City Harvest! Here’s some info from City Harvest:
Nearly 20% of New Yorkers currently live in poverty, struggling to afford basic necessities such as rent and medical care and put food on their tables.
City Harvest helps feed the more than 1.4 million New Yorkers facing hunger each year.
- We rescue some 136,000 pounds of food each day.
- We regularly give food to more than 500 community programs.
- It costs City Harvest just 25 cents to rescue and deliver a pound of food.
- 93 cents of every dollar donated directly supports our programs fighting hunger in New York City.
In our first month, City Harvest served 55 community food programs in New York City. Today we help feed people at more than 500 programs. Our goal is to grow our operations to address the demand for emergency food.
So, come out tonight, have some fun, and partake in a good cause! Sissy McGinty’s is located at 25-67 Steinway Street.
