Scion of Manhattan February Coat Drive

February 1, 2012 Leave a comment

Scion of Manhattan Coat DriveScion of Manhattan is proudly partnering with The Bowery Mission in holding a coat drive throughout the month of February. Please bring new or lightly used warm outerwear: coats, jackets, hats, gloves, and scarves to our drop off box here at Scion of Manhattan 645 11th Avenue, (corner of 47th) New York, NY 10036 if you would like to contribute to this cause and help our homeless New Yorkers stay warm. Contact: Josh Hennion or Jason Schroeck with any questions, or to arrange a drop-off (212) 399-9600

Our primary focus is coats, but we also are gladly accepting the following items:

  • Food– Non-perishable, bulk, and staple items (dry and canned) are best
  • Clothing – Clean, new and gently used clothing of all types is helpful. Large sizes are especially helpful. New underwear/undershirts and socks, new and gently used jeans and shoes, and professional clothing for those looking for work or re-entering the workforce. In the winter, warm outerwear: coats, jackets, hats, gloves, and scarves.
  • Linens – bath towels, face cloths, twin-size sheets and blankets, standard-size pillows and pillowcases, and sleeping bags.

In a city of 8.4 million people, more than 36,000 homeless men, women and children sleep in homeless shelters and at least 3,000 more sleep on the streets and subways in the dead of winter. This means that one in every 215 New Yorkers is currently homeless.

The Bowery Mission LogoThe Bowery Mission and Kids With A Promise is called to minister in New York City to men, women, and children caught in the cycles of poverty, hopelessness and dependencies of many kinds, and to see their lives transformed to hope, joy, lasting productivity and eternal life through the power of Jesus Christ.

This past year, donors and volunteers helped The Bowery Mission provide more than 369,200 meals, 30,500 bags of groceries, 79,300 nights of shelter and 53,200 articles of clothing, as well as showers, haircuts, 511 professional doctor’s appointments and 92 eye examinations at their in-house clinic.

Meals, shelter and services are all an invitation to The Bowery Mission’s residential recovery programs, where lives are transformed from hopelessness to hope. Three programs house 180 men and women who are regaining sobriety, reconnecting with family and faith, pursuing educational goals, and preparing for work and independent living.

The Bowery Mission and Kids With A Promise is committed to using your contributions faithfully and wisely to help men, women and children in New York City who are caught in the cycles of poverty, hopelessness and dependencies of many kinds, and to see live transformed to hope, joy, lasting productivity and eternal life through the power of Jesus.


Charity Profile: Nourishing NYC

January 30, 2012 1 comment

As previously posted HERE, on our Facebook Fan Page, we have 3 wonderful local charities that are being voted on by our customers, staff, fans & friends. Become our fan at Toyota of Manhattan and pick a charity from our list of three. Humane Society of New York, Variety the Children’s Charity of New York or Nourishing NYC. We will donate $2,500 to the one with the most votes by February 28, 2012! Vote for your Favorite Charity

We thought it would be a good idea if you knew a little more about each organization. With this in mind we decided to do a weekly “Charity Profile” for the next 3 weeks so you can understand what each organization specifically does, why the organization feels they should win the contest and what they would do with the money, should the organization win. Our last but not least organization to be profiled is: Nourishing NYC

Organization: Nourishing NYCI am thankful for Turkey food girl

Phone: (646) 524-7627

Address: 419 Lafayette St. 2nd Floor New York, NY 10003

Nourishing NYC Logo

Company Overview:

Nourishing operates throughout the 5 boroughs, to provide “Nutrition For All.” Nourishing opened in 2008 to address poor nutrition and health while simultaneously addressing the issue of food scarcity and hunger issues afflicting the poverty-stricken East Harlem community of New York City.


Nourishing NYC’s mission is to alleviate the strong correlation between low-income status and poor dietary health. We provide nutritious meals and nutritional education without question and without criticism. Anyone is welcome regardless of age, sex, race, financial qualifications, or religious beliefs. We achieve our mission through a three-pronged approach to feed, educate and advocate for those in need throughout New York City.

Why should Nourishing NYC win Toyota of Manhattan’s “Vote for your Favorite Charity” contest:

Nourishing NYC should win Toyota of Manhattan’s “Vote for your Favorite Charity” contest because we need funding to be able to provide citizen’s with need throughout New York City with a quality free urban produce garden, Junior Chef Program as well as through our advocacy campaign. In addition to maintaining the programs we have that help thousands of New Yorkers each year we are always striving to expand our programs and community-based anti-hunger initiatives.

What would you do with the $2,500 should Nourishing NYC win Toyota of Manhattan’s “Vote for your Favorite Charity” contest:

$2,500 will help us in our Thanksgiving Giveback campaign for the 2012 season. With the winnings from the contest we will be able to purchase hundreds of turkeys to give to in-need and impoverished families throughout NYC. Last year we gave out 1,000 turkeys and fed 10,000 people this year we would like to be able to feed even more people. In addition to the turkeys, we also provide urban nutrition classes from our V.A.N (Vehicle Advocating Nutrition), we bring health and nutrition classes to the street. With the $2,500 we could expand this program into even more neighborhoods and help win the battle between high levels of obesity and diabetes in low-income neighborhoods, by providing Nutrition For All.
