New York Giants to hold Canned Food Drive

The New York Giants have done great work for those less fortunate during the Thanksgiving holiday season.

In conjunction with the Food Bank for New York City, the New York Giants will be hosting a food drive this Monday, November 4th, 2019.  The Giants will be taking on the Dallas Cowboys at home in a Monday night football showdown.

The organization is encouraging those who are attending the game to bring a canned food item to donate.  The items will go to a great cause and help alleviate hunger to those who need it most throughout the five boroughs of New York City.

To bring awareness to this year’s initiative to end hunger, Will Hernandez, guard for the New York Giants, went to a Stop and Shop in Staten Island, New York and collected donations.  He also met with fans and signed autographs and posed for pictures, all while brightening the days of those he met and those that will receive the donated food items.

For nearly forty years, the Food Bank for New York City has worked to stomp out hunger and has made it their mission to eradicate poverty.  The New York Giants organization has done their part too, by hosting food drives during our home games each season during the Thanksgiving holiday.

You can do your part too.  The New York Giants are hoping you do more than just root for them!  If you are attending Monday nights home game against the Dallas Cowboys, be sure to bring a canned food item to donate.  The littlest of gestures can truly make a difference in someone’s life!

The New York Giants are looking to tackle the offense of the Dallas Cowboys, but more importantly, are hoping to tackle hunger!
