PLEASE SAVE THESE DATES!
Tuesday December 15 @ The Phoenix
Thursday December 17 @ Nowhere Bar
These are the dates for our annual food and clothing drives and holiday parties for the benefit of Sylvia's Place, the emergency shelter for homeless transgender, gay and lesbian youth in New York City.
I think anyone who reads my posts and blogs is aware of the homeless TLGB youth crisis in New York. Sylvia's Place has been doing the best it can for many years now, but they are in seriously bad shape this year with the city having pulled the major portion of their funding. Sylvia's now operates only with the help of people like you.
THESE HOMELESS TLGB KIDS ARE HANGING BY A THREAD AND NEED YOUR HELP!
Desperately and urgently needed this year:
Toothpaste and toothbrushes
Personal hygiene products
Cold and Flu medicines-generics and store brands are fine
Basic first aid supplies
Canned and boxed food goods
Coats,jackets, and gloves-used and clean is fine
Hats and caps-used and clean is fine
Scarfs-used and clean is fine
Blankets-used and clean is fine
You can help our TLGB family, our kids, by donating any of the above AND enjoy some great parties at the same time! Bring your items to:
Tuesday Dec. 15 @ The Phoenix
W. 13th Street btw. 1st Ave and Ave A
Thursday Dec. 17 @ Nowhere Bar
322 E. 14th Street btw.1st and 2nd Aves
We will make sure your donations get delivered to Sylvia's Place promptly AND you can enjoy all the great Holiday spirit, great people, and John's famous party food! (he's an awesome chef!) These parties are NOT to be missed!
Can't make the parties? Not in the NYC area? That's a major bummer and you'll certainly be missed, but you can still contribute and donate to Sylvia's Place. You can send a small check or money order to Sylvia's OR ship your donations there!
All donations are tax deductible and can be shipped directly to:
