Food Bank Holiday Hunger Appeal II

 

 

 

 

The Food Bank is once again kicking off their 28th Annual Holiday Hunger Appeal at Crossgates Mall. This year the appeal runs from November 14th through December 24th.

We have been assigned our second stint for December 19th from 6-9. We basically stand/wander around a setup area and hold baskets for people to put donations in. I did it last year and it was a very festive environment as shoppers were getting into the swing of the holidays! I did it last week with a group of 12 from our group and it was a lot more fun! With larger groups, it allows for breaks to eat or run off for a quick purchase! If you cannot stay the entire time, let us know when you can...it'll work.

Get on the wait list so we can be assured of backup!


Arriving at the Mall-The Food Bank appeal booth is on the lower level of the Mall at the bottom of the escalators just below Best Buy.

A good location to park is the front entrance parking lot (Route 20 side) near the Standard restaurant or on the upper level near Best Buy. Don't forget that if the Mall is very crowded, you can take the Mall shuttle.

 

Preparing For Your Shift-We ask that volunteers wear the stickers that will be provided so that shoppers can identify us as part of the Food Bank's Holiday Hunger Appeal.

    My three partners were very friendly. The time was used productively as we received $300 for the cause. I was late due to inability to find parking space,so I was not there for the briefing. Cathy, who was there on time, filled us in.

    Is bravery required? I haven't been brave in a while. In fact the last time I walked around with a basket was ... an Easter egg hunt .. 55 years ago.

    Where do we get the stickers? Do you distribute them at the bar? What bar are you talking about at the bottom of the escalator by Best Buy? I'll try to get there early and look for you or someone with a basket or baskets.
