Thanksgiving is the time of year when we reflect on our blessings and express our gratitude. It is also a time to give back, especially to those in our community who are less fortunate. This holiday season, we appreciate if you’ll consider participating in the Stark Office Suites Thanksgiving Food Drives, an initiative designed to help food banks across Westchester, Connecticut, Manhattan, and Long Island distribute food for those who do not have this Thanksgiving season. In collaboration with multiple organizations, Stark Office Suites is inviting everyone to extend their generosity and make a difference.
Food Drive Details
The food drive will be held until November 17th at all Stark Office Suites’ locations. Different items are being collected at each location, so be sure to check out the list of needed items before making your donation. All donations can be dropped off at the specific Stark Office Suites’ location.
