The New York Yankees will continue another great tradition this holiday season with the 18th annual Yankees Holiday Food Drive, presented by White Rose Foods. On Wednesday, December 14, between 10:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. at Gate 2 at Yankee Stadium (corner of 164th Street and Jerome Ave.), any fan bringing at least 30 pounds of non-perishable food will receive a voucher good for two (2) complimentary Grandstand or Bleachers tickets or two (2) half-price tickets in select general seating areas* to one of 22 designated games during the 2012 regular season.**
Joe Girardi (arriving at approximately 10:00 a.m.) and Yankees second baseman Robinson Cano (arrival time TBA) will be on hand to assist in collecting food items. The Yankees, in conjunction with Bronx clergy, will distribute the food throughout the Bronx to those in need. To help kick off the Yankees Food Drive, White Rose Foods and Domino – along with their Good Neighbor Brands General Mills, Unilever, ConAgra, Smucker’s, Barilla, Nestle, Red Gold, Georgia Pacific, Pinnacle, Motts and Kraft – will donate over 40 pallets of food (approximately 60,000 lbs).
Fans driving to the Stadium may pull up to Gate 2 to drop off their donation. Rice and bottled water will not be accepted.
