The Woodhaven Residents’ Block Association is throwing their annual holiday party this Saturday!
The event will feature music, food and drinks. It will be held at the Emanuel United Church of Christ at 91st Avenue and Woodhaven Boulevard.
And although the community will be celebrating the holidays, you can still do some good by supporting a good cause.
The American Legion Post 118 is collecting for the Veterans and this year they are accepting monetary donations (cash or check) to purchase gifts and supplies for the veterans. You can give your donation to Janet Chan-Smith either at the WRBA Holiday Party or drop it off in an envelope (Attention: American Legion Ladies Auxiliary) through the mail slot at the WRBA Office (84-20 Jamaica Avenue).
Another worthy cause is the Winter Clothing for Young Children drive hosted by former WRBA Woman of the Year JoAnn Bartos. The drive, which is hosted on behalf of Catholic Charities, will be collecting gloves, hats and scarves. You can drop off the donations at the WRBA Holiday party or at the Woodhaven Senior Center (at Woodhaven American Legion Post 118 – 89-02 91st Street) on weekdays from 9 am to 4 pm.
Don’t forget the holiday party will be held on Saturday, December 15 at noon.
