Bay Ridge Cares

Bay Ridge Cares Thanksgiving Dinner Volunteers

Change of Plans -  2020  

Delivering Dinner

SAFELY to our neighbors in need

Bay Ridge Cares will once again be serving meals to our local Seniors and delivering meals to those who are unable to celebrate Thanksgiving with family or friends. Last year we served dinner to over 300 people, but because of COVID, we will be doing things a bit differently this year.

Please read each description below to familiarize yourself with the changes for this year. 

We are unable to do a sit-down dinner at Shore Hill, but we will be providing pre-packaged meals to the residents. Distribution for these Shore Hill meals will be handled by the Shore Hill staff to limit the number of people in the building.


1.  DELIVERY OF MEALS to our neighbors will still be happening, but again, these meals will be pre-packaged by a caterer so that we limit handling to a controlled environment.  We are also limiting our deliveries to Bay Ridge, Dyker Heights, Bensonhurst and Bath Beach. PLEASE NOTE: Deliveries will take place on WEDNESDAY NOVEMBER 25TH between the hours of 5:00 - 6:30 PM

2.  WELLNESS CALLS - We are also looking for volunteers to make Wellness Calls on Thanksgiving Day to those who request one. 

3.  CARD MAKING - Another area of volunteerism is Holiday Card Making. Each family will be asked to make 10 cards.  Drop off is no later than Monday, November 23rd. Please EMAIL US at [email protected] for drop-off instructions.

We kindly ask that if you sign-up, please do so only if you are sure you can volunteer. When registering, only add names of volunteers who are age 18 and up or a parental contact.  If you have any questions, please email us at [email protected]

Please review the available slots below and click on the button to sign up. Thank you!


WEDNESDAY NOVEMBER 25TH -   5:00 - 6:30 PM


This assignment involves delivering meals to the homes of our neighbors who are elderly, homebound, disabled, or disadvantaged. CAR IS REQUIRED

Shore Hill Housing - 9000 Shore Road. Drive into the parking lot and proceed to the parking lot door to the community room. You will not be able to enter the building, but Bay Ridge Cares will have a pick-up window in the parking lot where volunteers will pick up pre-packaged meals. Enter the parking lot from 91st street driveway just past the West Building ( the driveway is easy to miss, so drive slowly)


THANKSGIVING DAY - Thursday, November 26th 


This can be done at your convenience on Thanksgiving Day. You will be asked to call 3 - 5 people who have requested a call to check on them and brighten their day. The number of calls can change depending on how many neighbors request one. Please provide an email address where we can provide the  information of neighbors you will assigned to call. 



Thanksgiving cards will be included in every meal that is delivered. Each volunteer/family will be assigned TEN cards to make. Cards need to be delivered to Bay Ridge Cares no later than Monday November 23rd at 5:00 PM. Please keep the cards gender neutral and pictures work better than words for those neighbors who speak different languages. Please EMAIL US at [email protected] for drop-off instructions.
