Time Warner Cable, partnered with NY1, is launching a month-long “Holiday Hopes & Happenings” food drive as an effort to help New York City-area families in need this winter. Non-perishable goods will be collected to benefit the Food Bank For New York City and City Harvest.
“Our holiday campaign couldn’t come at a more critical time when many families are in need, given the devastation that Hurricane Sandy left behind,” John Quigley, Time Warner Cable’s Regional Vice President of Operations for NYC, said in a statement. “Thanks to the joint efforts of our employees, customers, clients and the public, this food drive will help make the holidays a little brighter for children and families across the NYC area.”
Those who wish to help can drop off goods at the following locations:
Manhattan: At both Time Warner Cable stores in Manhattan, located at 46A East 23rd Street (between Park Avenue South & Broadway) and 2554 Broadway (at 96th Street), and Big Apple Circus at Lincoln Center, Damrosch Park at 62nd Street and Amsterdam Avenue.
Queens: The Time Warner Cable store located inside the Queens Center Mall (90-15 Queens Blvd) and Hillside Honda at 139-07 Hillside Avenue in Jamaica.
Staten Island: The Time Warner Cable store located at 2845 Richmond Avenue.
