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 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 every other Saturday of each month with deliveries led by members of the YPC. Afterwards, brunch at a nearby restaurant allows them to become better acquainted.
The YPC hosts a variety of events year-round, including happy hours, wine tastings, football tailgates, Yankee Stadium Party Suite events and more.
For more information, to sign up for upcoming deliveries and other activities, or to sign up for our mailing list, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
