Alumni, families, and friends of Andover
are cordially invited to participate in a contactless non sibi project for

NYC Community Fridges with Candace Douglas '00

Saturday, January 1, 2022
through
Monday, January 31, 2022
Join alumni across the country who contributed to similar projects in
a Zoom gathering on Tuesday, January 25th at 8 p.m. ET
We'll talk about our experience, connect with each other, and reflect on how we’re doing.

Food insecurity, which was already an issue in the city, was greatly amplified during the pandemic. But showcasing that the NYC spirit often mirrors our own non sibi principles, a growing collection of community fridges sprung up across all five boroughs.

Now, over 60 fridges are maintained by local networks of volunteers. The motto of the fridges is simple: take what you need, leave what you can. We've heard from partner organizations in the past that giving drops off after the holidays, so for this NYC centric non sibi virtual project, we’re asking that you help out at one of these fridges in honor and recognition of the continued need and resilience of our city. You can help by restocking a fridge with fresh items you’ve purchased (or grown!) and/or go the extra mile by taking a few minutes to quickly clean the fridge by wiping it down with your own cleaning supplies (using gloves and wipes). A map of locations can be found here. Suggested restock items include fresh produce, eggs, dairy (milk, cheese) and bread.

We encourage volunteers to snap a photo (bonus points for wearing Andover gear in your restock selfie)!
Submit your photo to Olivia Cristaldi Lacasse by 2/1/22 for entry to win a non sibi t-shirt.


Kindly RSVP here for donation reminders or guidance.
