Citibank, City Harvest and the New York Mets continue to make an impact in the community, especially feeing the hungry in the Metropolitan Area through the repacking apples event that was held at Citi Field on June 24.
Volunteers gathered from both Citibank and City Harvest gathered outside the Mets home stadium to repack apples donated from local area farms, which then go to food shelters in the area.
On a beautiful Tuesday, Volunteers gathered to learn an impact one apple can make to an organization like City Harvest and how to pick out the best quality product so that those who need it will get a good nutritious meal. Joining the volunteers in the efforts to help New York Hungry were Mets Great Rusty Staub and the greatest mascot in MLB Mr. Met.
Also getting the chance to throw out the first pitch tonight prior to the New York Mets game versus the Oakland Athletics was Paulina McCaulla, who is a resident of Astoria and a volunteer with City Harvest.
1495 Sports is proud to bring the following video from today that showed the volunteers, Rusty Staub and Mr. Met in action, in addition we got to chat with McCaulla, Eileen Auld who is the Citi Tri-State Regional Director of Citi Community Development and Kathy Gu who is the Assistant Manager Corporate Partnerships of City Harvest:
