Apple Bank for Savings will again be participating as a Community Partner in the City Harvest annual Feed Our Kids food drive, which runs from Mother’s Day on May 10 to Father’s Day on June 21.  All 51 Apple Bank branches in the five boroughs, including 17 in Brooklyn, will be accepting donations of kid-friendly, non-perishable food items that will provide much needed sustenance for New York City’s children over the summer. Visit www.applebank.com  to find the New York City branch location nearest you.

Last year’s Feed Our Kids food drive collected 250,000 pounds of food, which was enough to feed thousands of New York City families for an entire summer. City Harvest’s Feed Our Kids food drive was first launched in 2000, and has grown to include more than 700 collections points throughout New York City.
