Celebrate the Holiday Season with Holy Apostles Soup Kitchen!

11.29.22 | Food for the Soul

During the holiday season, there are many ways to celebrate and get involved with Holy Apostles Soup Kitchen. Donating in honor of a loved one is the perfect holiday gift, volunteering is a great way to celebrate the season of giving, and you can donate to our City Council Representative Erik Bottcher’s Holiday Toy Drive benefiting Holy Apostles Soup Kitchen.

Honor a Loved One with a Gift to Holy Apostles Soup Kitchen
This December is a great time to give the gift of a meal to a New Yorker in need. When you make a gift in honor of someone, we’ll send a holiday e-card or a physical card to the recipient of your choice. A donation is the perfect gift for the person in your life who has everything!

Sign Up to Volunteer at Holy Apostles Soup Kitchen
Looking to give back during the holiday season? Holy Apostles has volunteer shifts on all weekday mornings and on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday afternoons. You can view open shifts and sign up here.

Donate to Councilman Erik Bottcher’s Holiday Toy Drive
This December, City Council member Erik Bottcher is hosting a holiday toy drive for the families that visit Holy Apostles’ Food Pantry. Their office will be collecting new, unwrapped toys suitable for children from 3 months to 17 years old. You can drop off a gift at Erik’s district office, at 224 W 30th Street, Suite 1206 between December 5th and December 9th from 10AM to 5PM.
