Event description

Description

In 2012 The New York Irish Center along with the Irish Day of Action Committee Volunteers met a more seasonal type of need, to some of the worst affected areas in the Rockaways after Hurricane Sandy, by making and delivering over 600 shoeboxes to children and families that were severely displaced.

This magical effort has continued every year since because there is still a need for it. When the New York Irish Center re-opened its Shoe Box Factory complete with volunteer elves and made another 500 Shoe Box Gifts that were delivered to the Rockaways and distributed by “Homes for Humanity” to children in need.

In 2018 we will continue this seasonal relief effort by reopening our Shoebox Factory and bring a little joy to those in need of it most during the holidays.
