Thanksgiving Food Drives

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.
