The Gardiner Foundation Providing Thanksgiving Turkey Dinner to Women’s Shelter in the Bronx Community

Turkey Dinner GiveawayThe Gardiner Foundation is providing Thanksgiving turkey dinners to women’s shelters throughout the Bronx community. The meal drop offs, however, are not just for Thanksgiving. The Gardiner Foundation has been providing meals to the shelters to feed women and children who are hungry on most days.

The women’s shelters house young women between the ages of 16 and 24 with at least 1 to 2 children, ranging in ages from birth to 5 years old. Some women even stay at the shelter while pregnant.

The Gardiner Foundation has been serving several shelters in the Bronx in the Wakefield area. HeartShare St. Vincent’s Services operates across every borough of the city. They provide a comprehensive and holistic set of programming for both children and family dealing with a range of trauma related to family separation. The other shelters The Foundation serves are Baychester, which houses 35 young mothers with their children, and Eden, which houses 27 young mothers and their children.

The government helps to place the young mothers and their children in these shelters, but does not provide them with any other basic services. Some of the young mothers are undocumented immigrants who do not qualify for any government assistance, such as food stamps, Medicaid or cash benefits. As such, any donation is imperative in helping provide basic necessities, especially food.

Even more important in getting food donations, especially for Thanksgiving, is the fact that the shelters are old Bronx motels that the government and the Department of Homeless Services (DHS) use to house these families. The facility has no kitchen and only one microwave for the entire facility.

In order to help address this issue, The Gardiner Foundation has been providing hot meals consisting of whole chicken, rice, beans, mixed vegetables and chocolate cookies. The next meal is scheduled for November 5th, and then a Thanksgiving feast on November 24th.

Cindy C.
A few years ago I was misdiagnosed and nearly ended up becoming a quadriplegic. Three spinal fusions followed. I asked my sister, a top D.C. lawyer, to find the name of the best personal injury lawyer in NYC, and I was referred to Jeff Korek of... Gersowitz Libo and Korek. It was a tough time for me, but Jeff and Irene were great and helped me through it every step of the way. They were compassionate, understanding and very accommodating, yet professional and always with their fingers on the pulse. They really care about the welfare of their clients, and not just money driven. When I was unable to travel, Jeff came to me, and I live an hour from the city. This firm is well known, well established, and has earned the respect and credibility among its peers. I highly recommend the firm of Gersowitz Libo and Korek without hesitation and, in fact, I already have. My thanks go out to the entire team for a better than expected outcome!!! They get a 5 out of 5 stars from me!!read more
