Note event time is 5:00pm - 7:00pm EST
Giving Tuesday is a National Day of Giving Back. In the spirit of the season and as part of the Chapter’s community service initiatives, we will be celebrating by creating care packages for a local homeless shelter.
Join us from 5-7pm at the offices of Visit Flanders 620 8th Ave, New York, NY 10018 as we assemble kits that will provide extra comfort and much needed essentials for people who need a little warmth as the weather gets colder.
This is a chance to meet and chat with fellow PCMA members, snack on pizza and Belgium and Portland beer (provided by Visit Flanders and Travel Portland) and give back to the community.
The registration fee for this event is $25 and will go to purchase supplies for the kits.
If you can’t make it, or even if you can and want to contribute further, we have put together an Amazon Wishlist where you can purchase needed items and they will be shipped directly to Visit Flanders. https://amzn.com/w/QGD95F2UKXY3
. If you are purchasing from the list, please check the quantity and priority needed. We will be updating the list for priority to ensure that we are collecting a proper balance of items for each care package. Deadline to order is November 20th.
Additionally, please bring any gently worn coats as we will be supplementing our donation with a coat drive. If you have new, unopened items that you would like to have included in the care packages, please bring those too. This includes items such as socks, chapstick, airline toiletry kits, etc. The more that we collect, the more kits we can put together and provide to the shelters.
