New York City Rescue Mission

Delivered: Nonprofit Organization Mailers in the Mailbox This Month
February 28, 2014

Rails-to-Trails' mailer is the gift that keeps on giving. Any donation earns the giver four free issues of Rails to Trails magazine and members-only discounts on the conservancy's other publications and gifts; in addition, those who donate more than $18 receive a free T-shirt.

World Wildlife Fund's mailer is effective in that it contains just three inserts and a self-addressed stamped envelope.

New York City Rescue Mission's pocket-size request highlights some overly specific donation numbers: $12.84 to help six people, $17.12 to help eight people and $27.82 to help 13 people.

February 25, 2009

Soup Kitchen International, the creators of the Zagat-rated soups of Al Yeganeh, the legendary soup man who inspired the "Soup Episode" on Seinfeld, today announced a partnership with World Hunger Year (WHY) and the New York City Coalition Against Hunger (NYCCAH) to continue Yeganeh's long-standing tradition of helping New Yorkers in need. "Al's Feed the Hungry Foundation," The Original SoupMan's non-profit charity headed up by Major League Baseball Hall of Fame legend, Reggie Jackson, will donate 800 gallons of soup to three soup kitchens: New York City Rescue Mission, Union United Methodist Church, and Bowery Mission. To commemorate the donation to the three soup kitchens, WHY, NYCCAH and The Original SoupMan will be holding a media event on Wednesday, February 25 at 12 pm at the New York City Rescue Mission located at 90 Lafayette St in New York, NY. As a special guest, Lisa Bouchelle, one of WHY's "Artists Against Hunger and Poverty", will be on hand to perform the single, "Time", featured on WHY's "Serve3" benefit album.
