Good Neighbors Community + Connections Day
June 28, 2023
Support the Food Bank and be a Good Neighbor!
As president of Northland Communications, Jerry McCarthy was committed to helping and promoting local community organizations. In 2020, to honor Jerry, the McCarthy family planned 'Good Neighbor Day' to raise awareness and funds for local nonprofits on what would have been Jerry’s 89th birthday. Although the COVID-19 pandemic canceled the in-person event, the Good Neighbor program was formed, and local nonprofit organizations started meeting monthly to collaborate and support one another.
Three years later, Northland Communications and the McCarthy Family will finally be able to host the event in person on June 28, 2023, at NBT Bank Stadium! Food Bank of Central New York is proud to be joining 19 other local area nonprofit organizations for the Good Neighbors Community + Connections Day. Leading up to the event, we will be raising funds and awareness, which is where we need your help!
Here's how you can support the Food Bank and help us unleash the top match of $10,000:
- Participate in our Virtual Food Drive! Every dollar donated will help provide 3 meals to neighbors in need.
- Purchase tickets to the Syracuse Mets' game that will be held on the Good Neighbors Community + Connections Day, Wednesday, June 28, 2023, using THIS LINK.
- When you attend the game on June 28, doors will open early at 4:00 pm. Fans can visit with the 20 non-profit partners to learn more about their work, volunteer opportunities, and make final donations. Stop by the Food Bank table, make a $10 minimum donation and you will go home with a City of Syracuse Monopoly game!
We appreciate your continued support of our mission and look forward to seeing you on Wednesday, June 28.
