With one in five children in New York City facing hunger, Dattner Architects joined City Harvest’s “Skip Lunch, Fight Hunger” – a citywide campaign to help feed hungry children and their families in New York City.
To fundraise, we planned two special events: a Corn Hole Tournament with raffle prizes, and a Bake Sale. Raffle prizes and baked goods were generously donated by our talented employees and their friends and families.
Between online donations and the money donated through the Corn Hole Tournament, raffle tickets, and Bake Sale, we raised $1,521.50. With the Dattner Architects firm match of $500, plus an additional $500 match from the Cowin Foundation for being one of the first firms to raise $500, our total donation to City Harvest came to $2,521.50!
Every dollar donated helps City Harvest rescue good food that would otherwise go to waste and deliver it to soup kitchens, food pantries, and other community food programs that families in our city turn to for help. One $15 lunch can feed 60 children.
City Harvest has always been here to help feed New Yorkers in need, and now their work is more important than ever. Thank you to our staff, friends, family, and industry colleagues for participating in both of our events and helping us make sure no children in our city go hungry.
