Hello JC Ties Members!
The holiday season is here and that means it’s time once again for one of our annual events: The 3rd Annual Jersey City Ties Holiday Toy Drive to benefit the Hudson County Boys and Girls Club. For the past few years, we have been collecting toys and gift cards (for teenagers) to help bring some holiday cheer to Jersey City children and teens, and we need your help this year, once again, to make this holiday season a little brighter for our young neighbors. We will be hosting our Happy Hour Toy Drive at Lucky 7’s in downtown Jersey City to collect toys and gifts for those in need.
The Boys & Girls Club is facing a serious shortage this year, so every donation will make a difference. And if you cannot attend the Happy Hour (or even if you can!), we encourage you to set up collections in your office or apartment building or to reach out to friends and family for donations. If you are interested in doing so, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org we can arrange to collect your donations for drop off at the Boys & Girls Club by Friday, December 20. Check back soon on our Facebook event (https://www.facebook.com/events/698916796809815/) for more details on drink specials and other event info. Unwrapped toys and gifts and gift cards will be gratefully accepted.
We are also excited because this year, the New Leaders Council – New Jersey will be participating in the event by collecting toys from their members around the state! The mission of the New Leaders Council is to train and support the next generation of progressive political entrepreneurs – those who are leading industries, setting trends, and building institutions that support robust civic and political life in a global America. We are happy to be teaming up with the New Jersey Chapter of the NLC to make this event even bigger and better than ever before.
Looking forward to seeing you there!
