As federal help dwindles, organizations like The Salvation Army and Citymeals on Wheels are forced to turn more to private donors and our donations to keep going. These programs are also heavily reliant on volunteers, who show up in abundance at the holidays. Major Lurlene-Kay M. Johnson of The Salvation Army of Greater New York and Rachel Sherrow of Citymeals on Wheels say while the holidays may be the time when their clients are most in need, every month ends and there is always a need for food, as one in six children in New York face food insecurity.
