Hippodrome, Manhattan Mini Storage, WorkSpace Offices and the Ludlow Team up for Successful Food Drive

(New York, NY, December 19, 2012) With the winter holidays almost wrapped up, The Hippodrome, Manhattan’s A+ office building located in the heart of Midtown, at 1120 Avenue of the Americas, is pleased to announce the success of its third annual food drive, in partnership with other Edison Properties companies and Food Bank for NYC.

All of Edison’s 17 Manhattan Mini Storage locations, as well as The Ludlow, the company’s Lower East Side luxury rental apartment tower, and its two WorkSpace Offices, ran food drives from Thanksgiving through mid-December, encouraging New Yorkers to donate food at any of these locations. In all, more than 11 bags of food were collected and distributed to various feeding centers throughout the city, including Door Soup Kitchen, Christ Church United Methodist Soup Kitchen, Broadway Community, Inc., and Union Settlement Senior Services.

In addition, the company made a $20,000 donation to Food Bank for NYC.

“There are too many New Yorkers in need,” said Stacy Stuart, EVP of Marketing. “And so it’s vitally important, especially around the holidays, that everyone does their part to make life a little easier for the less fortunate.”

Food Bank for NYC warehouses and distributes free food for over 1.5 million hungry New Yorkers each and every year. Founded in 1983, it is one of the country’s largest food banks

Last month, Edison also partnered with LivePerson, the online marketing and web analytics company, and the charity volunteer program FeedingNYC to hand-deliver entire Thanksgiving dinners to the doors of families in need across all five boroughs. And Manhattan Mini Storage donated 3,500 boxed meals to families affiliated with the charitable organizations Women in Need, the Jewish Federation, Catholic Charities and City Harvest.
