Hope for New York (HFNY) held its Fourth Annual Spring Benefit on Thursday, May 13 at the New York City Fire Museum. This young supporters event encouraged nearly 300 attendees to “Walk with Mercy”— the theme of the evening. Photographs of HFNY’s affiliates and volunteers engaging in acts of mercy such as preparing meals or packing homeless care kits were displayed throughout the room. Each attendee was challenged to ‘walk with mercy’ by volunteering and giving financially to HFNY’s affiliates. One theme that was shared during the evening was how God calls us to engage the city’s poor and marginalized. The needs in the city are still great, especially for those living in low-income and poverty-dense communities. Hope for New York is committed to the long haul of engaging these communities with volunteers and financial resources.
Since the event was underwritten by generous donors, all donations made through the Spring Benefit will go directly to programs. If you were unable to attend the benefit but would still like to participate in “Walk with Mercy,” please visit http://www.hfny.org to learn about ways to volunteer and give to Hope for New York. Thank you for supporting our affiliates who are mercifully meeting the needs of underserved communities across the city.
