In partnership with Tzell, CIRE Travel will donate one item of food for every ticket we issue for the month of June in honor of Tzell’s fifth annual Day of Giving, Thursday, July 13.
2016 was a huge success with Tzell branches raising $14,034 in donations, equaling over 70,000 meals! In addition, 39,674 grocery items (11,590 pounds of food) were collected and 39 volunteers donated 116 hours of their time to support the Food Bank.
Food Bank For New York City is thrilled to have our commitment once again. For those who may not know, the Food Bank has been the city’s major hunger-relief organization working to end hunger throughout the five boroughs for more than 30 years. Nearly one in five New Yorkers relies on the Food Bank and it provides 400,000 free meals per day to New Yorkers in need.
Considering we issued over 900 airline tickets in April, we’re expecting to donate nearly 1,000 food items. Extra bins are ready in our office.
