Our goal starting earlier this year is to help those people in need sooner than later.
New York, NY (PRWEB) October 20, 2009
One of the premiere NYC attractions, NY SKYRIDE is committed to supporting the city it celebrates. From November 1- December 31, NY SKYRIDE, located in the Empire State Building, is working together with the Food Bank for New York City to collect canned goods for hungry New Yorkers. NY SKYRIDE guests will be able to purchase tickets for only $15.00 - a $21.00 savings - provided they bring in a can of food and the website downloadable certificate. Non-perishables can be deposited in Food Bank Donation bins located at the NY SKYRIDE and the top ten most needed items include canned beans, milk, fruit, vegetables, juice, meat, fish, soup, stew and peanut butter.
With this food drive, New York sightseeing has become compassionate--and economical. By visiting http://www.skyride.com/fooddrive.html , guests can download a Food Drive Appreciation Certificate that, combined with a can of food donated at the NY SKYRIDE Box Office, allows them to purchase a NY SKYRIDE admission ticket for only $15.00. Additionally NY SKYRIDE will donate $1 to the Go Orange campaign for each admission. Individual donations for the cause can be made at http://help.foodbanknyc.org/nyskyride
"The need never goes away," states Myron Baer, Vice President, Business Development, NY SKYRIDE. "Our goal starting earlier this year is to help those people in need sooner than later."
Partnering with the New York City tourist attraction for this food drive, the Food Bank For New York City provides 300,000 free meals served daily to New Yorkers in need. At least 1.3 million New York City residents are at risk of going hungry. The majority of them are women and children, the elderly, people with disabilities and the working poor.
Offering group tours of New York like no other, visitors can see all New York has to offer from inside and outside the Empire State Building when they enjoy this unique NYC experience. Visitors and even native New Yorkers can learn about 30 different NYC attractions, from the Statue of Liberty to Times Square--all in the city's only virtual tour simulator.
