THANK YOU

Dear Friends,
My sincere thanks to you all for digging deep and helping to get the Liberty Kitchen & Food Drive off to such an inspiring start. We now have a car full of canned goods ready to be delivered.
Dave Narby, the SILP Secretary, has been in contact with Project Hospitality. We’ll be working with them and other neighborhood organizations to get these gifts to where they’re needed most.
Local food banks are reporting 30-40 additional families seeking assistance each week. We’re talking hard-working, self-reliant families who have simply found themselves overwhelmed by these tough economic times. And sadly, it might just get worse.
So please, keep it coming:

  • Jars of baby food always needed
  • Non-perishable foodstuffs and canned goods
  • New or like-new pots, pans, microwaveable cookware, and cooking utensils
  • Extra or unneeded cookbooks also welcome
  • No donation is too small.
  • Feel free to bring your gift to our next Town Hall meeting

To arrange for pickup or find the nearest drop-off location:

Call our Liberty Line at 646-543-7457

Or contact info@statenislandlp.org

The goal of the Liberty Kitchen & Food Drive is simple: Help families to help themselves by maintaining a sense of independence, dignity, and self-worth. We’ll faithfully assist in providing food to those in need, plus the knowledge and tools to prepare it.
Again, thank you on behalf of your neighbors for your generosity and compassion.
Highest Regards,
–ed
Edward Stehlin, Chairman

Liberty Kitchen & Food Drive

As Libertarians we teach and support the American heritage of liberty, enterprise, and personal responsibility. Yet there are periods when hard-working, self-reliant families can find themselves overwhelmed by tough times.
For a growing number of families, those times have now hit home.
As a result, our local food banks and pantries have been hard hit, too. We’ve heard from several organizations that 30-40 additional families are seeking assistance each week.
In case you missed our last Liberty Tree Town Hall or recent posts, the Staten Island Libertarian Party is on the move collecting food and other kitchen essentials. Today we’re asking your help.
Non-perishable foodstuffs and canned goods are preferred. Baby food and formula are always needed. Any new or like-new pots, pans, microwaveable cookware, or cooking utensils are also welcome. We’ll even find a good home for any of your extra or unneeded cookbooks.
A Staten Island Libertarian Party officer will coordinate with the food banks and pantries, so these goods reach those operations with the most urgent needs. You may also specify one of your own choosing.
To arrange for pickup or find the nearest drop-off location, call our Liberty Line @ 646-543-7457 or contact info@statenislandlp.org. You can also bring your donation to our next Town Hall meeting. No donation is too small.
The goal of the Liberty Kitchen & Food Drive is simple: Help families to help themselves by maintaining a sense of independence, dignity, and self-worth. We’ll faithfully assist in providing food to those in need, plus the knowledge and tools to prepare it.
On behalf of our neighbor friends and families, we thank you for anything you can contribute.
