WORKING WITH BSCAH
At the end of 2013, USHG completed an office fundraising initiative for the holiday season where we raised $5,130. Additionally, the Accounting team did two separate outings at BSCAH – December 2012 and August 2013. During those outings the team assisted with breaking down large pallets of donated product, stocked the warehouse and pantry shelves and worked within the pantry to assist clients as they shopped.
On February 10, 2014, Maialino (USHG’s Italian restaurant, located in Gramercy Park) hosted an industry ride at SoulCycle’s 19th Street spinning studio, to benefit BSCAH. The ride was hosted by Chef Nick Anderer, and raised $6,000. On February 17,2014 USHG hosted another event at Maialino (located at 2 Lexington Avenue) and raised $8,000 for BSCAH!
