Yonkers mayor, teamsters fight holiday hunger with food drives
Yonkers Teamsters Local 456 got some help from Mayor Phil Amicone and ShopRite today as union members doled out holiday meals to some 1,200 senior citizens across the city. The teamsters union raised enough money for a holiday meal for the seniors, and ShopRite matched all of their donations. This morning, Amicone and other city officials joined the teamsters as they made their presentation to seniors at Flynn Manor on Riverdale Avenue.
With the average cost of a Thanksgiving dinner hovering around the $100 mark, all of the seniors said that they were incredibly grateful for the opportunity.
