Opportunities for Connecting and Giving at the Annual Meeting

The NYACP Annual Meeting is the perfect time to get together and give together!  If you want to make connections and get involved, here’s how: 

1. Make a difference together by giving back to the people of our host community.  The NYACP Volunteerism committee is holding a Food and Fund Drive to benefit Feeding Westchester.  Bring a non-perishable food item to donate or contribute to the online fund drive.  

Planning to donate or already did?  Share it out with #IMInvolved

I’ll be bringing a food donation to the #NYACP2019 #FoodDrive to benefit #FeedingWestchester.  If everyone committed to bringing 1lb of food, we could easy surpass the 150 lb goal.  Let’s do it together!  #IMInvolved
Every dollar provides 4 meals for children, families, and seniors struggling with hunger.  Let’s feed hundreds together!  Donate at:  https://fundraise.feedingwestchester.org/NYACP  #IMInvolved #NYACP2019 

2. Join in the fun and comradery by participating in the Halloween Photo Contest.  Submit your photos by email to aallen@nyacp.org or tag us on twitter with #IMFun. Choose up to one photo for each category:  1.  Adults/Families, 2. Pets, 3. Kids, 4. Decorations

Vote for my Halloween Photo at #NYACP2019!#IMFun 

3. Let people know you will be attending and find out who else will be there!  Here’s a ready-made tweet for you to share:

Who is going to #NYACP2019 in #Westchester?  I am and I hope to meet you there!  #IMProud #MOC #CME #IMFun #IMInvolved

NYACP Food and Fund Drive

As we gather together, let's make a difference together!  NYACP's Volunteerism Committee has organized a food and fund drive at this year’s Annual Scientific Meeting.  Our donations will benefit Feeding Westchester, a food bank that serves that area surrounding NYACP's meeting location.  

The committee has set a goal to collect 150 lbs of food and $500 in funds.  There will be bins available at the meeting to deposit food items onsite or you can donate funds here.   Every $1 provides 4 meals.  Let's help nourish those in need!

Not sure what to bring?  Here is a list of the most needed food items:

  • Beans (canned or dry)
  • Cereals (whole grain)
  • Canned meat/fish
  • Milk (shelf stable)
  • Canned Vegetables (low sodium)
  • Canned or Dried Fruit
  • Peanut Butter
  • Pasta & Rice

NYACP’s Halloween Photo FUNraiser
