The Homeless Bus – Doing Our Part Together
Mar 16 @ 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm

When you volunteer at the Y, you become a bigger part of the community. Join us as we partner with the Homeless Bus. The goal? To prepare 150 sandwiches for delivery to those who are homeless in New York City. Please register by March 12.

The history of the Homeless Bus began in 1992 when Director, Mark Landgrebe, attended an Anthony Robbins seminar in Hawaii and he heard about a program that helped feed needy families on holidays, prompting him into action. At first, Mark delivered food only on holidays, but he quickly realized that holidays weren’t enough and that these people were in need of assistance every day. Lacking the funds to aid them daily, Mark, and his wife Anna, settled on Saturday night deliveries and they have consistently visited these people weekly ever since, logging in over two decades of visits. On most trips into NYC, they serve a meal usually consisting of, Cup-O-Noodles soup, turkey and cheese sandwiches, hot chocolate, water, cookies, and other various snacks.
