On Friday December 11, 2020 at 2:00pm DJ Xotic Mami released a digital flyer for her Feed The Hungry Initiative and within 2 hours by 3:43pm she had already received over 400 emails and phone calls for information on where to get food and how to be apart of the drive.
Local restaurants used to give away food for free at the end of the night but that ended with the arrival of Covid-19. Restaurant owners just can’t afford it anymore.
Pantry numbers have escalated from over 200 people per day to 500.
Someone asked DJ Xotic Mami what she wanted for Christmas and her reply was "I need NOTHING other than your help to keep people fed. Nobody should go without food." DJ Xotic Mami dipped into her savings and brought bread, deli meat, cheese, water, snacks and facemask. Her first stop Penn Station in NYC, she was devastated when she discovered Children sleeping under mounds of blankets and coats on NYC Subway station staircases. Food during a global Pandemic is not enough. DJ Xotic Mami goes on to say “It’s not just about Feeding the Hungry, it’s about the Value of Life. We've noticed thousands of homeless people without mask. There were children out there 6-7 years old to teenagers, We’re in the middle of a Pandemic and the numbers are climbing and getting worst every day. Their Lives Matter. Homeless lives matter. "They need facemask" Covid-19 is killing everyone. Everyone should have a level of protection.
Food charities are suffering from unprecedented demand. There are unprecedented shortages of food at food pantries. If people can't find food in pantries, then we will bring the food to the people. I want nothing more than to raise money to help keep people fed.
I am raising this money to support The Community Hope Foundation charity. Every penny raised will be donated to this charity as they take to the streets daily to feed the Hungry and The Homeless.
I certainly understand many people reading this will not be able to help, or may choose other charities. I understand, and pray you find the resources you need, or find it in your heart to help in whatever way possible.
Also, time is of the essence. As soon as this campaign reaches its current goal of $50,000, I will request a withdrawal of the funds and deliver the appropriated amounts as soon as they are available to me. Hopefully this week! I can’t thank you all enough for your kindness and compassion. It means so many more people will at least have the comfort of food. ❤️
I will also update this campaign with pictures and videos of our work in the Community so You can see your dollars at work.
Data published last week by the New York States Department of Labor showed that more than 3.545 million people lost their jobs between the middle of March and the end of November, 2020 while the federal government’s social development agency predicts that the coronavirus-induced economic downturn could push as many as an additional 3.7 million people into poverty.
DJ Xotic Mami along with her staff DJ Digga, Kristen Raysor, Christopher Cable, Cynthia Horner and over 30 volunteers walk the streets to find the hungry and homeless. Unfortunately with NYC MTA closing the trains down at 1:00am the homeless are not hard to find. So along with a Bag of Food I am going to give the Homeless Face Mask, Clothing and For The Children We meet out there you will receive a Toy to play with for for cognitive development"
We expect to feed at least 1,500 in 5 days. We will start at 9pm and work through the night. We will be giving away a sandwich, a snack, a bottle of water and a face mask in each bag. When feasible we will be giving hot meals. All volunteers and staff are dedicated to social service and equality. We have also collected a few Clothing Items, Shoes, Cosmetics, Coats and Toys which will be distributed as well.
We anticipate crossing paths with many people who recently lost their jobs and homes due to the coronavirus pandemic and no longer have any money to put food on the table. If you are hungry we will feed you. If you need a face mask we will give you one. All children we come in contact with WILL receive a toy.
DJ Xotic Mami goes on to say “A lot of people are struggling right now and this pandemic is taking a lot of lives, and hurting a lot of families, someone has to help the voiceless. The shelters are overcrowded and we as a State, a Country were not prepared for the toll this pandemic would play on our way of life.“
We Will do all we can to help our communities in these damaging and trying times.
