Kicking off our CORE and Community initiative, over 30 CORE agents and staff members participated in pre-Thanksgiving meal delivery in East Harlem with Union Settlement Association and Meals on Wheels. The team helped prep and bag hot and cold meals, deliver food and greet recipients over two days ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday. Union Settlement serves about 1,250 older adults each year, offering daily group meals, exercise activities, nutrition and wellness classes, cultural activities, adult day care and other support to the local community. Union Settlement’s Meals on Wheels program provides a daily hot and cold meal to over 500 homebound seniors. As the oldest social service provider in East Harlem, the meal delivery program also delivers to a number of veterans living in the area.
CORE first became involved with Union Settlement during the One Museum Mile pre-development phase. Over the years the team has been involved in a number of initiatives. In 2014, Shaun Osher was honored at their annual Solutions Benefit. We are thankful for our experience and opportunity to give back to the community surrounding One Museum Mile.
