My name is Leena. Originally, we were supposed to throw two holiday parties for Bethany’s House, a homeless shelter in Long Island on the 17th of December, 2022. Because of the recent uprise of Covid, & other viruses, it was requested that we found a venue that will accommodate one big party and where we will have room to spread apart. We are now having our holiday party for the Homeless Shelter at a venue located in Baldwin, which we are partially financially responsible for.
Currently, the shelter provides temporary housing for 40 children with their families, as well as homeless single women. We will be buying gifts such as toys, games, clothing, etc. depending on the childrens’ age.
With the help of your contribution, we will throw an amazing party for the Bethany House which will include decor, crafts, activities, food, dessert, and an appearance by Santa! If we raise enough funds, we will also buy gifts for the adults. Our aim is to give the children a memorable time.
100% percent of the proceeds will go towards the home.
We thank you in advance for any contribution. If you are interested in learning about the home, their website is https://www.bhny.org
