Philanthropy is one of the main pillars of the 41°-74° Club that makes us stand out from other travel/hospitality industry organizations. The club hosts a Holiday Luncheon each December which raises thousands of dollars for worthy charities. Our Philanthropic Committee carefully researches local charities to ascertain the best recipients of these contributions. We also often support other causes as the need arises through the generosity of our members.
This year the club has chosen Hunger Free NYC to benefit from our Holiday Luncheon fundraiser held at the New York Lotte Palace Hotel on December 13, 2019. We are happy to announce that we raised $8,672 at our event and that the club increased that amount to a total donation of $15,000. Below is information about this year's chosen charity.

The story of this year's charity - Hunger Free NYC
HUNGER FREE NYC, THE NEW YORK AFFILIATE OF HUNGER FREE AMERICA, (formerly known as the New York City Coalition Against Hunger) is a nonpartisan, national nonprofit group working to enact the policies and programs needed to end domestic hunger and ensure that all Americans have sufficient access to nutritious food.
We are both a direct service and advocacy organization — with each component strengthening the other. As a direct service provider, we assist low-income families obtain aid from government programs such as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) — formerly called the Food Stamp program — and the Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) program so that people struggling to pay their bills have access to nutritious food. We also connect families nationwide with private food resources. Because our staff works daily on the front lines of hunger, and because we empower low-income people to speak out on their own behalf, that makes us one of the nation's most effective advocates for improved economic and public policies.
