Work Out, Give Back, Feel Good On Sunday, December 7, 2014, SMPS-NY Board Member Margaux Jaffa and I sat on the planning committee and participated in the 4th annual Spin For Hunger to support the St. Francis Food Pantries and Food Shelters.

[expand title=”Click here to read more about Spin for Hunger…”] This year, SoulCycle in Williamsburg hosted the event and the volunteers raised over $55,000 towards feeding NYC families in need this holiday season. A new record! In attendance were Fox News 5 Good Day New York’s co-hosts Rosanna Scotto and Ines Rosales, who highlighted the event. It’s important to me to make time to give back to the community in which I live. I learned very early on the joy helping others brings. It’s something my parents always did while I was growing up. I am fortunate to have worked with some many volunteers in our industry who feel the same way, what a successful event! Click here to see photos from the event.

There are 40 non-profit Food Pantries, Soup Kitchens, Safe Havens, Drop-In Centers and Shelters supported by St. Francis Food Pantries & Shelters throughout the Bronx, Manhattan, Brooklyn, Long Island, Westchester and New Jersey.
