2015 Free Holiday Buffet for the Bronx’s Neediest Population 
We would like to invite you to support our 2015 Free Winter Holiday Buffet for the Bronx’s neediest population. It will be held on December 23, 2015 in our spacious auditorium.

Typically, the winter holidays are a time of joy, merriment, and celebration, but for many of our residents; it is the loneliest time of the year. Those in need and our senior citizens, particularly, often struggle through this season for multiple reasons; some due to financial hardships, others because loved ones live too far away to visit or even friends they’ve known for years have passed on. All these factors make what should be a happy time become one of isolation and even depression. To mitigate this problem, our organization has planned week-long activities including movies and carol evenings, culminating with a free holiday buffet on December 23, 2015 for those in need and our senior citizens. We plan to feed and are able to accommodate 300 people in our spacious community center. You are cordially invited to generously support this event and invest in someone’s life.

 

Christ Disciples International Ministries, Inc (CDIM) is a 501 (c) (3) faith-based organization. It was established in the year 2007 with the mission to end hunger and related illnesses in the Bronx County of New York City. We achieve our mission by providing food to any Bronx’s resident through our regularly scheduled food distributions on Wednesdays and Saturdays including seven days a week walk-in provision for those on food emergencies. We distribute more than 78,500 free nutritious food packages to greater than 1200 Bronx’s households monthly. We, also, run a vibrant community health project including Walk Club which wraps around the food program to raise awareness of the dangers of diabetes, asthma including obesity, and teach risks’ reduction. Furthermore, seniors in need of computer skills participate in our computer literacy classes free of charges. Our vision is a community where families are healthy, self-sufficient and contributing members of the society. We would like to invite you to help us better serve our community at this special time of the year:
