As many of you know, I participate in a few Charity & Social Groups in New York.
I believe, as many of you probably do too, that we have so much time for ourselves, so why not donate a bit of it for those that really need us, right?
Every Saturday I participate in a Feeding Program at 11am, at Tompkins Square Park (on 7th Street), in the East Village.
It’s a group created by Friends in Need with Latinos NYC.
Every 3rd weekend of the month, Latinos NYC takes over and organizes the day feeding around 200 homeless people.
We always need help and everyone is welcome!
Who to contact?
Our dear friend, visionary and Founder of Latinos NYC, Raul Rios! He’s the Heart of it all and brings together a beautiful group of volunteers every 3rd weekend!
A bit about Latinos NYC:
“Founded in April of 2008. Its inception was born out of the vision of the Board's Chairman, Raul K. Rios, who recognized many of the ills of his community were either being overlooked or under recognized.
Rios served his country in the United States Army from 1981-86, from which he retained the duties of the oath he took and a dedication to finishing his mission.
These characteristics and more are discovered in everything LatinosNYC does.
The company's name derives out of the mosaic that the Latino culture is within New York City.
A contrasting conglomerate of shades, dialects, customs and more that somehow share a thread of similarity that makes the diaspora so vastly unique and congruent simultaneously.
Over the last several years, LatinosNYC has proudly garnered recognition for their work and continuously are expanding their efforts to grow and improve upon on their success.
