THE BRONX - The New York Yankees and White Rose Foods gave out more than 2,500 holiday vouchers to people in need today.

Bronx residents waited on line at Gate 2 of Yankee Stadium for hours, some braving overnight temperatures to receive a $25 voucher.

The Yankees say more food vouchers were given out this year compared to previous years.

The vouchers can be redeemed at any local Met or Pioneer.
