UPA Donates to Madison Square Boys & Girls Club’s Thanksgiving Food Drive

For most families in our country, Thanksgiving is a time spent together enjoying a holiday meal and being together. Yet this is not true for everyone in the Bronx due to food insecurity. This year, however, the Thanksgiving holiday will be a little brighter for several hundred local families due to local businesses and organizations who care about the economically challenged in the Bronx. Every year, United Public Adjusters & Appraisers is a key contributor to making the Madison Square Boys & Girls Club’s Thanksgiving Food Drive a success. For 2022, UPA was again honored to participate in the event held on November 18th between 4-7 PM at the charitable organization’s Bronx Clubhouses: John E. Grimm III Clubhouse and Joel E. Smilow Clubhouse.

Every year, the goal of the Madison Square Boys & Girls Club Thanksgiving Food Assistance event is to serve 300 turkeys for each of the two Clubhouses, which will help 600 families. United Public Adjusters & Appraisers assists by providing produce, groceries, and turkeys to be donated to needy families around the Bronx communities the firm has pledged to serve. An additional monetary contribution by UPA provides significant support to assist in organizing the Holiday event food giveaway.

For this year, as in the past, The Bronx Board of Managers at the Madison Square Boys & Girls Club worked alongside the United Public Adjusters & Appraisers’ team to secure donations and Thanksgiving Turkeys for Clubhouse Members and their families. Again, for 2022, United Public Adjusters & Appraisers teamed up with Sysco Food Service distributors who provided great pricing and even handled the logistics to ensure both Bronx Clubhouses received the turkeys at the appointed time. The Madison staff, as well as the volunteers, helped to distribute an estimated 500-600 15-lb. frozen turkeys. Along with the distribution of the turkeys, the Madison Team and UPA also provided families with all the fixings to create a great holiday meal including, rice, gravy, stuffing, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, and carrots to the appreciative Madison families.

The United Public Adjusters & Appraisers team will be proud to continue helping those in need for years to come. However, food insecurity also continues for many in the borough of the Bronx. We ask that as Christmas approaches, please reach out to see how you can help to make the Winter holidays a little brighter for the less fortunate. Go to to learn more. Together we can raise spirits and make more happy holiday memories for Bronx families.

United Public Adjusters & Appraisers, Inc. thanks all the sponsors and volunteers who again donated their time and money to continue the worthy Thanksgiving Turkey mission and assist to achieve its success!
