All week long, the North Brooklyn Angels have been giving away household and clothing items to neighbors in need.
Every midday, in coordination with their regularly-scheduled 12:30 p.m. hot meal service, the nonprofit has been giving out items at different locations across north Brooklyn.
Residents and local businesses have also donated items to be gifted, including new comforters, bed linens, window dressings, personal hygiene items, socks, wooly caps and fleece scarves.
Here’s the schedule for the North Brooklyn Angels giveaways:
- Monday, December 16: St. Anthony’s Church on Manhattan Avenue
- Tuesday, December 17: Brooklyn Public Library on Division Avenue
- Wednesday, December 18: St. John’s Lutheran Church opposite Williamsburg Houses
- Thursday, December 19: Cooper Park Houses’ Residents Council, on Kingsland Avenue and Jackson Avenue
- Friday, December 20: Mot Holy Trinity Church
Though North Brooklyn Angels has only been in existence for two-plus years, it has served over 110,000 meals, engaged 750 volunteers and donated over 10,000 pounds of fresh produce.
