Addison Food Service at the GMHC
In continuation of Addison’s 50th Anniversary celebrations and commitment to giving back to our community, Addison completed its second volunteering event of the year. In October, two groups of 10 Addisonites each provided food service at the Gay Men’s Health Crisis (GMHC) in Manhattan.
The GMHC is a not-for-profit, community-based, volunteer-supported organization committed to national leadership in the fight against AIDS. Their mission is to reduce the spread of HIV, and help people living with the disease to maintain and improve their health and independence. Their center provides an array of facilities and programs to help its clients.
Addison volunteers worked hard to serve a hearty meal to the GMHC clients, as well as clear away trays, help elderly or disabled clients, and clean up after the food service was over. The GMHC clients and members were very appreciative of Addison’s efforts in helping to feed nearly 300 people.
Addison will round out the year with two more projects with New York Cares—transcribing Winter Wishes letters from children to fulfill holiday gift requests, and donating coats for the annual coat drive.
