The Alewife Angel Tree

Make Christmas Happen


There are 157 Shelter kids living in Long Island City ranging from 4 Months to 18 Years Old.  The Founding Members of LIC Eateries want to help makes sure these kids have a Christmas, so we’ve made an Angel Tree.  A simple paper ornament was made with the information gathered by shelter volunteers about each child handwritten on the back.

Here’s where you come in:  Between now and 12/23 take one of the ornaments off of our tree and go shopping (Amazon can still get items to you in time if you hurry)!  Return the ornament with a bag full of wrapped presents that can go under their tree at the shelter for them to unwrap on Christmas day.  We have to have the presents by 12/23.

Anyone who drops off  gets a complimentary drink at the bar!

Please participate – go in with friends – and let’s Make Christmas Happen!
