184 “Bags of Beauty” Donated to Youth at Covenant House
To celebrate the one year anniversary of our “Share Your Beauty” giving initiative, Family-to-Family, Lara Eurdolian of @PrettyConnected.com and LeSportsac teamed up for a “bags of beauty” giving party!
Guests at the event filled to the brim donated LeSportsac cosmetic bags with perfumes, lotions, makeup and more for teens and young women in need living at New York City’s Covenant House youth shelter. The party, which took place at LeSportsac’s flagship Madison Avenue store in NYC, was the 5th Share Your Beauty event to date. Through Share Your Beauty, over the past year more than 32,000 beauty products have been donated and delivered to women and teens who are homeless or victims of domestic violence, providing them with what we hope is a little “sparkle and dignity.” Learn more.

The fund was established to help Jewish senior citizens who might otherwise go hungry. Read more.

Give Where You Live (or work!)
Our newest addition – a workplace hunger relief project… Let’s Do Dinner!
In Yonkers, New York, managers at the Stew Leonard’s grocery store joined together to donate and assemble all groceries needed for 33 “dinners in a bag,” each complete with a corresponding recipe. The bags were donated to a local food pantry and given out to families struggling to put food on the table.
