92nd Street Y
How they are participating
In addition to securing an anonymous donor with a matching grant of $150,000, departments across 92Y have focused their efforts on a month of giving in dozens of ways, including with food and clothing drives, care packages to elderly veterans, holiday cards to US soldiers abroad, gift baskets to domestic violence shelters and much more, all of the results of which will be announced on #GivingTuesday.
In the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, we’ve turned our attention to relief efforts, opening our spaces at no charge to local families, donating ticket revenue to the UJA Hurricane Relief Fund, launching food, clothing, toiletry and pet supply donation drives and encouraging employee volunteerism. On #GivingTuesday itself, we will host a sale of food, clothing, jewelry and artwork from our many different departments, reflecting the diversity of work we do here at 92Y.
