For the 7th year in a row, Blackstone joined City Harvest to combat hunger in New York City, raising a total of $57,886 for the ‘Skip Lunch Fight Hunger’ campaign. Blackstone more than doubled its contributions from last year and ranked #1 among the 200 teams who participated in the City Harvest campaign. The Blackstone Charitable Foundation matched dollar-for-dollar donations from employees helping Blackstone reach and surpass its contribution goals.
With Blackstone’s help, ‘Skip Lunch Fight Hunger’ raised nearly $650,000 – enough for City Harvest to help feed more than 26,000 hungry children and their families for the entire summer. Over the last 10 years, ‘Skip Lunch Fight Hunger’ has made a critical difference in City Harvest’s efforts to feed children and families, raising more than $3.6 million to date.
