Yankees, Mariano Rivera to host holiday food drive
The Yankees are set to host their 19th annual Yankee Holiday Food Drive, presented by White Rose Foods, on Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m at Yankee Stadium.
Mariano Rivera will be present collecting nonperishable food from 11:30 a.m. to noon.
Fans are being asked to bring nonperishable food items to Gate 2 of the stadium. Anyone who donates 30 pounds or more of nonperishable food items (rice and bottled water will not be accepted) will be rewarded. Fans who reach the 30-pound mark will receive either two vouchers for grandstand or bleacher tickets, or half-price tickets in selected areas to one of 19 designated games for the 2013 season.
