Help make the holidays brighter for a family in need!

Shoppers at Gristedes are invited to make a donation at the register through Thanksgiving weekend for the supermarket chain’s annual “Put a Turkey on the Table of a Needy Family” campaign in partnership with St. Francis Food Pantries and Shelters.

The company raised more than $20,000 last year to purchase turkeys for underprivileged New Yorkers, thanks to its big-hearted patrons.

“Gristedes is fortunate to have so many loyal and caring customers who pitch in to support worthy charitable causes, such as this one,” said chairman and chief executive officer John Catsimatidis.

The donations bring comfort and joy to families around the city, added the pantry’s co-founder.

“They help us give many deserving families an enjoyable and happy Thanksgiving dinner,” said Fr. Francis Gasparik.
