For “Giving Tuesday” (Dec. 3rd) ,and the rest of the month of December, I am raising money to support Queens Community House. Please help us celebrate the spirit of giving, and raise funds to support this organization that truly opens its doors to the borough.
Dollars raised will go towards serving over 20,000 children, youth, families, and older adults every year, who take part in our 40 programs across 25 sites in Queens. Some examples of these services include pre-k, after school youth programs, legal services for immigrants, meals for seniors, and family homeless prevention services.
Here’s how far your dollar can go at QCH:
$1,000 provides hot meals for 5 home-bound seniors for a year
$500 secures 2 years of housing for a family facing eviction
$250 provides 7 weeks of English classes for a recently arrived immigrant adult
$200 supports a bag of groceries to 20 families in need through our food pantry
$50 provides 30 children in our After School Program with art supplies
