A Miracle in North Tonawanda Aims to help NT Food Pantry

Next Wednesday, December 13 will be a “Miracle in North Tonawanda” to benefit Twin Cities Community Outreach (TCCO), home of the NT InterChurch Food pantry, according to Niagara County Legislators Rich Andres, Randy Bradt and Jesse Gooch, who are spearheading the effort. 

The Riviera Theatre will be hosting a free public screening of the Christmas classic “Miracle on 34th Street” with all those attending encouraged to bring a non-perishable food item to the event.  There will also be a special hot chocolate bar set-up, with all proceeds from those sales going to TCCO.

In addition, many restaurants across North Tonawanda have agreed to donate 10 percent of their sales on December 13 to TCCO in support of the food bank.  Each restaurant will also have contribution envelopes on their tables for patrons who would like to make an additional donation.

“What better way to get into the spirit of Christmas than enjoying dinner at any of the fabulous establishments in North Tonawanda, followed by watching one of the greatest holiday films ever made in a Miracle on 34th Street on the big screen at the Riviera,” said Legislator Andres.  “At the same time, you will be assisting TCCO in providing food, clothing and holiday good will  to people in our community who are in need.”

The Riviera Theatre is located at 67 Webster Street in North Tonawanda.  The food drive will run from 5p.m. to 7 p.m. with volunteers on hand to help unload cars. The screening of Miracle on 34th Street will begin at 7 p.m. For a list of participating restaurants, click here.   If your restaurant would like to participate, please email Legislator Andres at legislatorandres@gmail.com.
