9 Million Reasons

$1,798 of $1.0M goal

Raised by 12 people in 9 months
Created April 12, 2018
Our mission is to serve the homeless and underprivileged. Those who may need a miracle from up above. New York City has given us 9 million reasons to want to give.
There are 9 million people in New York City, and every one of them has given us a reason to reach out to the community around us. No one in this city should have to beg for food, shelter or clothing. Our heart’s desire is to eliminate hunger and homelessness.

The homeless rate in New York is at its highest since the great Depression in the 1930’s. In February 2018, there were 63,343 homeless people, including 15,546 homeless families with 23,314 homeless children, sleeping each night in the New York City municipal shelter system. Families make up three-quarters of the homeless shelter population.

·       An estimated 1.4 million New York City residents rely on emergency food programs, including soup kitchens and food pantries, each year.

·       Approximately 339,000 New York City children, or approximately one out of every five (19 percent), rely on soup kitchens and food pantries.

 

The meal gap for New York City is nearly 225 million; that is, New York City residents who experience food insecurity fall short of an adequate diet by 225 million meals in a single year. New York City’s meal gap makes up over half of New York State’s meal gap.

 

4.5 million people live at or below the poverty level in the 5 boroughs.

  

Please help us help those that are in need. WE want to raise $1,000,000 for this very purpose.
