The Queens region of Champion Martial Arts partnered with Operation CR (Child Rescue) last month to collect 2,171 canned and boxed foods to be donated to the Food Bank for New York City.
The Food Bank for New York City runs food pantries and soup kitchens throughout the five boroughs.
Operation CR is a nonprofit that was officially launched Nov. 1 in an effort to fight child hunger locally and globally, as well as provide clothing and toys to children in need. The organization hopes to continue to partner with local groups to help impoverished children in the community, according to Operation CR Secretary William Dobie.
Champion Martial Arts in Bayside, Flushing, College Point, Maspeth, Ozone Park and Little Neck worked with Operation CR as part of their community service outreach.
