God’s Love We Deliver and NYC’s Oldest Bar Partner to Feed Chronically Ill Individuals Throughout Downtown Manhattan
God’s Love We Deliver to be beneficiary of The Ear Inn’s 200th anniversary celebration
(New York, NY – Oct. 11, 2017) – God’s Love We Deliver, the New York metropolitan area’s leading provider of life-sustaining meals and nutrition counseling for people living with severe illnesses, is partnering with The Ear Inn, NYC’s oldest bar, to celebrate the establishment’s 200th anniversary by raising enough funds to feed its lower Manhattan clientele for an entire year.
On November 11, 2017, The Ear Inn will host a block party for the community that will include live music, food and more to feed all of God’s Love We Deliver’s downtown clients which would total 35,000 meals for the year.
“God’s Love We Deliver is honored to be a part of this historic 200th anniversary celebration of The Ear Inn,” says David Ludwigson, Vice-President & Chief Development Officer at God’s Love We Deliver. “It is a wonderful way for us to say thank you to our supporters in the neighborhood and beyond at a favorite local historic institution. We could not be more grateful to The Ear Inn and all of the sponsors for making this event possible, and for supporting nutrition and home-delivered meals for our neighbors. With the generosity of so many, we can always be there for all those in the New York City metropolitan area who are too sick to shop or cook for themselves and together, we are feeding downtown!”
By joining together, these iconic downtown institutions will create a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for the community to feed thousands of their own who are living with severe illnesses. Brands, businesses and individuals can sponsor the event which is expected to draw thousands. The cost to prepare and deliver 35,000 meals is $350,000 which is the fundraising goal of the event.
“Quote from Martin Sheridan, Owner of The Ear Inn”
God’s Love We Deliver serves 1.7 million meals annually throughout all five boroughs of New York City, Westchester and Nassau Counties, and Hudson County, New Jersey. In September, the organization celebrated cooking and delivering its 20 millionth meal. The 200th anniversary of The Ear Inn personifies the commitment both establishments have to NYC’s downtown. Local artists will participate in the festivities and games for kids will be organized by the Downtown United Soccer Club. There will be a commemorative book available for purchase that will feature ‘characters’ of downtown.
