For years, members of the city’s young professional community have regularly volunteered with Citymeals in order to serve their homebound elderly neighbors. In 2013, the Citymeals Young Professionals Committee (YPC) was established to provide a framework through which they could focus their efforts.
The Young Professionals Committee consists of a group of dynamic professionals, 40 and younger, who raise money and awareness through events and volunteer activities.
The YPC is co-chaired by Byron Athans and Danielle Valenti Smith.
Young Professionals deliver meals to isolated older New Yorkers on the first Saturday of every month. Afterwards, brunch at a nearby restaurant allows them to become better acquainted.
The Young Professionals Committee hosts a variety of events year-round, including happy hours, bowl-a-thons, Yankee Stadium Party Suite events and more.
The Citymeals Young Professionals Committee would also like to cordially invite you to join them on a rooftop for drinks on Wednesday, August 20th! James Beard Award-winning chef Tim Cushman will be our gracious host on the rooftop of the Park South Hotel in Murray Hill. Hope you can join us and toast to a great season.
