Ardsley High School's Silver Lining Club Collects Food for ARCS' Pantries

Thursday, October 18th, 2012

On Sunday, October 14th, members of the Ardsley High School Silver Lining Club tabled outside of DeCicco’s market in Ardsley to ask generous shoppers to donate nonperishable foods and toiletries to ARCS’ food pantries. The group donned some of our AIDS Walk t-shirts to be more visible, and did a great job collecting food for our nutritional services clients! Thanks to everyone in the club who volunteered that day, and thanks to the kind and caring DeCicco’s customers who made it all possible!

Ardsley's Silver Lining Club Holds Food Drive for ARCS

Wednesday, November 9th, 2011

On Sunday, November 6, 2011, members of the Ardsley High School Silver Lining Club held a food drive at DeCicco’s Market in Ardsley for ARCS’ food and nutrition programs. The group handed out shopping lists to DeCicco customers as they entered the store and collected nonperishable foods, household cleansers and toiletries to be distributed to ARCS’ food closets. Even though the drive ran for just 3 hours, the group brought in an entire carload of donated food and supplies. Special thanks to club representatives Katherine Loomba and Felice Segal for organizing the event, and to ARCS’ THRIVES Coordinator Meredith Morabito for hanging out with the club and bringing the food back to ARCS.






Thanksgiving Food Drives

Friday, November 19th, 2010

We’re thrilled to announce that we have two Thanksgiving food drives coming up, both organized by wonderful community partners. What better way to say thanks for all you’ve got than by sharing a little bit with a family in need?

Ardsley/Westchester County:

The Silver Lining Club at Ardsley High School is holding a food drive at DeCicco’s Market at 21 Center Street in Ardsley on Sunday, November 21st from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm. Stock up on Thanksgiving meal supplies and purchase an extra non-perishable food item to drop off outside at the ARCS table. The Club is also accepting donations of cleaning supplies and personal hygiene items, as these items are often expensive for families of ARCS’ clients. Ideal items include laundry detergent, household cleansers, shampoo, moisturizer, shaving cream, soap and deodorant.

Poughkeepsie/Dutchess County:

Thanksgiving is almost here, and you know what that means; Everyone is home for the Holiday! Yes, that’s right – the Wednesday night before Turkey Day is one of the biggest nights of the year to go out!

That said, join your old friends – and make some new ones, too – during Big Gay Wednesday at Babycakes Cafe on Collegeview Avenue in Poughkeepsie. The party starts at 9pm on Thanksgiving Eve, and goes until 2am… so you’ll have plenty of time to catch up with your friends.

In the spirit of giving, BGHV and Babycakes have partnered with ARCS – AIDS-Related Community Services – to help stock their Poughkeepsie food closet We know we CAN do it; but we need your help! Bring a grocery bag of non-perishable food items with you to Babycakes this Wednesday Night, Nov. 24th, and you’ll receive a coupon good for a two-for-one cocktail (limit one per person) that evening!

In addition, everyone that brings a bag of non-perishable food to Babycakes this Wednesday will also be entered to win two tickets for Christmas with Tom and Trixie: Is That All There Is? on Thursday, December 16th at 8pm.

Not only will you get a chance to imbibe, dine on a dessert with your friends, or enjoy the beats served up by the boys of Prephab, but you’ll also have the chance to help ensure that those less fortunate will have something to eat this holiday season.

So put on a cute new outfit, raid your pantry and fill a bag, and come on out to Big Gay Wednesday at Babycakes this November 24th; we’ll see you there!

Babycakes Cafe is located at 1-3 Collegeview Avenue near Vassar College in Poughkeepsie.

Food Drive at Dobbs Ferry Stop and Shop

Tuesday, June 9th, 2009

On Sunday, May 17th the Silver Lining Club of Ardsley High School held a food drive outside the Stop and Shop in Dobbs Ferry, NY. These dedicated teens spoke to every customer as they entered the store to ask them to purchase one extra nonperishable food item for ARCS’ food pantries. In just three hours, they collected enough food to completely fill an SUV. We extend our deepest thanks to the Silver Lining members and to the residents of Dobbs Ferry and surrounding towns for donating!
