I received the following email from Nicole of Greenpoint and it just warms my heart to see all of the local charitable things going on around the hood this season. There’s the Toy Drive at Boulevard Tavern and at The Diamond from Sat, 12/1-Tues 12/18 they’re doing a Coat Drive/Canned Food Drive raffle where even 3rd place gets you a $50 bar tab!
We have created a NY Cares Coat Drive drop-off at the Church of the Ascension in Greenpoint to make an easy nearby drop-spot for people who wish to donate coats to this good cause. It involves nothing more than people bringing by gently-used coats and they get a tax write-off and everyone feels good and people who need coats get them.
Drop offs can be made at the Java Street entrance to Ascension Hall during the following times:
SUNDAYS: 11:00am – 1:00pm
TUESDAYS: 4:30pm – 7:30pm
WEDNESDAYS: 4:30pm – 7:30pm
SATURDAYS: 10:00am – 12:30pm
