Give Me Astoria has raised over $20,000 and has a special announcement!

By Loulou Chryssides

Over the last two months, Give Me Astoria has been fundraising to support healthcare/essential workers and our neighborhood restaurants. As of today, we are proud to announce that we have raised over $20,000 in this effort!

With the help of your donations, we provided dozens of meals to healthcare heroes from Mount Sinai Queens to BronxCares. We have also delivered hundreds of meals to local police officers, firefighters, grocery workers, veterans, and more! All of this, while proudly supporting over 60 local restaurants.

And, there’s more!

Today, Give Me Astoria is proud to announce our partnership with 9 H.U.G.S to expand our mission. This will allow us to purchase and distribute food to vulnerable populations such as the elderly and struggling families.

In response to the current COVID-19 crisis, 9 H.U.G.S has partnered with Solletto in order to purchase meals to distribute to those in need. Through our partnership, we will be continuing this mission to feed those who need it the most!

We are incredibly grateful and proud to continue this work to help assist our community during this time. Once more, we thank you for donating, spreading the word, and making all of this possible!
