Each year, Union Settlement strives to make the holidays brighter for hundreds of East Harlem families in need.
More than 47 percent of the children in our community live below the poverty level, and the need is great. The holidays, in particular, provide a stark reminder to our neighbors of how difficult it is just to “get by.” Therefore, Union Settlement makes a special effort to assist families during the holiday season.
For Thanksgiving, Union Settlement distributes care packages complete with turkeys, fresh produce and canned goods to members of the East Harlem community, and the community can help with monetary donations online and by check. This helps Union Settlement purchase food to add to the care packages.
Donate by November 9th in order for Union Settlement to purchase the requisite number of turkeys.
