Mo pitching in to help the needy
By Wallace Matthews
Mariano Rivera will be at Yankee Stadium Wednesday to assist the Yankees in their annual holiday food drive. Fans who wish to donate non-perishable food items can come to Gate 2 at the Stadium tomorrow between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. and if you get there between 11:30 and 12 noon you'll get to meet Mo, too. In addition, any fan bringing at least 30 pounds of food will receive a voucher for two complimentary bleacher or grandstand tickets or two half-price tickets in select seating areas for one of 19 designated games in 2013.
The Yankees, in conjunction with Bronx clergy, will distribute the food throughout the Bronx to those in need. To help kick off the Yankees Food Drive, White Rose Foods will donate approximately 90,000 lbs of food. Fans driving to the Stadium may pull up to Gate 2 to drop off their donation. Rice and bottled water will not be accepted.
