The Mets are teaming with their community partners at City Harvest to help out New Yorkers suffering from the aftereffects of Super Storm Sandy. The Mets are asking for their fans’ help, too, with a food drive on Wednesday, November 14, between 9 AM and 5 PM, at Citi Field’s Hodges entrance on the first base side of the ballpark.
Details, from the club:
Fans donating 10 items or more of nonperishable nutritious food will receive a voucher redeemable for one pair of tickets to a select Mets game in April 2013. Donors will also receive 15% off select merchandise at the Mets Team Store at Citi Field. Season Ticket Holders who donate food can show their ID card to get 20% off select items. The discount will only be honored Wednesday, November 14.
Among the items most needed are: canned fruit and vegetables, plastic jars of peanut butter, packages of hot or cold cereal, and packages of macaroni and cheese. Items that will not be accepted are: unlabeled, expired, or dented cans; any open packaging; products that need to be refrigerated; or homemade products.
Fans dropping off food may park in Lot G on 126th Street between the Right Field Gate and Roosevelt Avenue.
If you can help, your team and your neighbors will appreciate it greatly. Thank you.
