Mo, Bernie volunteer for Holiday Food Drive

Fresh off his agreeing to a two-year contract, Mariano Rivera will join former teammate Bernie Williams at Yankee Stadium Thursday as part of the Yankees’ 17th annual Holiday Food Drive, presented by White Rose Foods.

Fans bringing at least 30 pounds of non-perishable food to the Stadium between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. at Gate 2 on the corner of Jerome Avenue and 164th Street will receive a voucher good for two complimentary grandstand or bleachers tickets or two half-price tickets in select seating areas to one of 22 designated games during the 2011 regular season.

Fans donating the required food amount will also receive a voucher valid for discounted ticket pricing for the 2010 New Era Pinstripe Bowl between Syracuse and Kansas State Dec. 30 at the Stadium, compliments of New Era. Vouchers may be redeemed online at http://www.ticketmaster.com or at the Yankee Stadium Ticket Office.
 
Rivera (10:30-11:30 a.m.) and Williams (11 a.m.-12 noon) will be on hand to assist in collecting food items. The Yankees, in conjunction with Bronx clergy, will distribute the food throughout the borough to those in need. Rice and bottled water will not be accepted.

To help kick off the Yankees Holiday Food Drive, White Rose Foods – along with their Kraft, Unilever, Snapple, New World Pasta, Masterfoods, Domino, Conagra, Carolina Rice, Clorox, Campbell’s, Nestle, Smuckers and General Mills – will donate more than 40 pallets of food (approximately 60,000 pounds).
 
Fans driving to the Stadium may pull up to Gate 2 to drop off their donation.
