Approximately 3.3 million New Yorkers experience difficulty affording food for themselves and their families, an increase of 60 percent since 2003.
During Operation Drumstick, your team will be involved with feeding Thanksgiving meals to 5,000 needy people throughout New York City. These hurting people will receive a good old-fashioned Thanksgiving Dinner with all the trimmings: roasted turkey, cornbread stuffing, vegetables, cranberry sauce, and dessert. In addition, your team will experience two nights of ministering to the homeless on the streets of New York City.
