Citi announced today that they will write a check to City Harvest, United Neighborhood Houses, USO of Metro New York and YMCA of Greater New York to the amount of $138,000 to combat hunger and aid youth in miscellaneous mentoring endeavors.
Citi committed to donating $2,000 to one of four tri-state area community partners and the Citi Thank You Home Runs for Communities Program that launched during the New York Mets’ 2014 season was successful.
Mets outfielder Curtis Granderson served as a player ambassador of the program and is happy to see the positive results in the form of a substantial donation. “The program added so much excitement to the on-field action at Citi Field this season,” said Granderson.
“And as a result of our 59 home runs, Citi is able to donate funds and continue to support the community even further.”

ARAMARK at Lincoln Square Neighborhood Center
Four dedicated volunteers from ARAMARK put in a full afternoon of lunch service for the seniors of Lincoln Square Neighborhood Center. The event started off in the kitchen, where the volunteers helped LNSC staff prep the day’s meal – and even slicing potatoes for meals to come. With Christmas music filling the dining area and a disco ball hanging festively in the middle of the room, ARAMARK volunteers dished up lunch and brought it to each senior. Following lunch and clean-up, they helped LNSC fold calendars of January’s upcoming events and menus to distribute to the seniors. It was welcome help for sure. Reflecting on his experience, ARAMARK Sales Consultant Darin Milman said, “Serving lunch to the seniors at LSNC allowed me to reflect on the importance of giving. They were so grateful and they enjoyed the meal too!” Thank you ARAMARK volunteers for your service.
BlackRock at Sunnyside Community Services Center for Active Older Adults
If anyone knows how to throw a spirited holiday party, it’s Sunnyside Community Services. A great team of 10 BlackRock volunteers, led by UNH Board Member Tom Skrobe and SCS Board Member Earl Nelson, greeted seniors at the door, chatted with them at their tables, served lunch in the kitchen, and cleared tables after the meal. BlackRock gave an extremely generous donation of a 42” flat screen TV for the Center, and brought a special dessert for the seniors of macarons and pastry cookies. Following lunch service and even a visit from Councilmember Jimmy Van Bramer, a live band kicked up the music with salsa and merengue, and the seniors took over the dance floor. “It was fantastic to see how lively and engaged everyone at SCS was in the holiday celebration, and such a pleasure to be able to help add to their enjoyment of the festivities,” said Mike Oler of BlackRock. Thank you to the volunteers for making this holiday party one of a kind.
Rialto Capital Management at Hamilton-Madison House’s City Hall Senior Center
UNH Board Member Nelson Hioe and his team of 15 volunteers from Rialto Capital Management brought the holiday spirit to Hamilton-Madison House’s City Hall Senior Center. In addition to providing special lunch service to the packed room, Rialto Capital Management donated money for fresh fruit, which HMH used to purchase juicy Korean pears to go with each lunch served. During the meal, 50 gift cards to a local grocery store - additional gifts from Rialto Capital Management - were raffled off. Thank you for not only serving lunch but making sure this holiday season was one filled with fresh food for seniors.
