Media & Press

Awareness of the Christmas Dinner, in media both new and old, is crucial to driving public interest in volunteering and donating resources. Social media platforms, newspapers, magazines, radio, television, and other online outlets are all utilized to get our message out to Westchester residents and businesses. The Media & Press team will create the Dinner's press releases, coordinate press coverage, and manage social media accounts. And we'll be on hand Christmas Day to supervise press attendance.
