Popular grass roots organization StreetPass NYC is proud to announce a partnership with local video game charity organization S.O.S. Gamers and Isaiah TriForce Johnson in collecting non-perishable canned foods for the food action charity group City Harvest.
“Super Mario 3D Land is only a few days away”, said Super Mario Bros VS World Record Holder Isaiah TriForce Johnson. “While we wait, let’s raise some food for the less fortunate this Thanksgiving so they too can enjoy the holiday!”
“We are extremely fortunate to be working with the local gaming community icons such as TriForce and S.O.S. Gamers”, said Jordan White, Founder and Event Organizer of StreetPass NYC. “TriForce will be waiting first in line from November 7th until November 12th at the Toy’sR US in Times Square which will be the hosting the Super Mario 3D Land LaunchParty by Nintendo of America. During that time, people can stop by anytime and donate non-perishable canned foods into the giant Question Mark Box. All non-perishable canned food donations will be donated to City Harvest by SOS Gamers to feed the hungry and homeless this Thanksgiving.”
