New York Common Pantry receives grant and 1,000 hours of volunteer service from AIG

New York Common Pantry (NYCP) has received a grant from AIG, which will be used to support NYCP’s food distribution and other programs. This year NYCP projects to serve over 4 million meals and generate nearly $6 million in new resources for visitors.

In addition to financial support, AIG’s employees have provided over 1,000 hours of service to the agency over the past five years. In addition to serving dinner in the Hot Meals program, AIG volunteers help pack and distribute grocery packages to families in NYCP’s Choice Pantry. The partnership between AIG and NYCP is based in long-term volunteerism and on-site volunteer participation. Representatives of AIG also provided support for and attended the Fill The Bag benefit. “AIG’s support for our food provision programs provides assistance as we bring our services to even more New Yorkers through our new satellite pantry in the South Bronx,” stated Stephen Grimaldi, Executive Director of NYCP.
