Charitable Events this Holiday Season


There’s something about the holiday season that makes your feel fortunate for what you have, but also puts you in the spirit of giving for those who may be less fortunate. If you’d like to give back this holiday season, there are plenty of charitable events happening in the Patchogue area over the next few weeks. Check out the listings below for events taking place near New Village.  

Harmony Café Holiday Luncheon – This holiday season, donate your time to volunteer at Harmony Café 2nd Annual Holiday Luncheon. The Luncheon will be hosted at Veterans of Foreign Wars Hall in Patchogue on Wednesday, December 13th from 12pm-2:30pm. Volunteers will work alongside Chef Maria Mcgiff to cook and prepare food for attendees, who participate in the pay-what-you can luncheon. There will be live holiday music, as well as a toy and gently used winter wear collection. For more details, please visit the link below.

Ronald McDonald House Collection at George Martin’s- From December 10 though December 21, George Martin’s Strip Steak Restaurant in Great River is hosting a toy collection for the Ronald McDonald House of Long Island. A “Giving Tree” full of ornaments that list items to purchase and donate is set inside the restaurant. Those interested in donating should visit and select an ornament from the tree. All toys must be dropped off to George Martin’s Strip Steak by Thursday, December 21st  and should be unwrapped or wrapped in clear cellophane.  

Toys for Tots Donations- Founded by the U.S. Marine Corps in 1991 as a 501 (c)(3) non-profit charity, Toys for Tots is a program that distributes toys as Christmas gifts to less fortunate children. Although Toys for Tots is a nationally recognized organization, the charitable giving has local impact as the collected toys are distributed in the community where the campaign is conducted. This holiday season, it’s easy to donate toys with the help of Toys for Tots sponsors, Toys R Us, who is accepting toy donations on behalf of the foundation. You can also make a monetary donation to the foundation by clicking the link below.
