New York Office Hosts “Gimme Five Food Drive”

In the spirit of giving during the holidays, our New York-based GOOD committee organized the “Gimme Five Food Drive,” benefiting City Harvest. The idea? If everyone in the office brought in $5 or 5 canned goods, we’d be able to easily reach a goal of 500 donations.

We divided our office into teams based on discipline, and awarded “turkey hands” for items brought in. You can see how colorful our kitchen became over the course of the food drive in these photos.  

Happily, through the generous nature of our team – and a healthy dose of competition – we were able to more than quadruple our original goal of 500 donations, bringing in 2,400 donations (including both monetary and food donations).

City Harvest is a wonderful organization helping more than 1 million New Yorkers that face hunger each year. For more information, check out their website at cityharvest.org.
