In honor of today’s observance of “#GivingTuesday,” I recently joined forces with Marie Michele Destil, the owner of a local Haitian restaurant “Gingerbites” to help raise funds and awareness of a much needed humanitarian effort following Hurricane Matthew's destructive impacts on Haiti.
The mission of “Giving Tuesday,” was designed to follow “Black Friday and Cyber Monday,” to help promote the need for selfless acts of kindness and a fun way to give back to the community.
Those interested in helping to support Haiti can make monetary deposits at the collection boxes at Gingerbites Restaurant & Catering located at 730 East Jericho Turnpike in Huntington Station or in the main lobby at Huntington Town Hall, located at 100 Main Street in Huntington through November 30th.
All proceeds will benefit the “Meds & Food for Kids” Haitian charity, which is a 501(3) (c) organization that is devoted to saving the lives of Haiti’s children. Checks will be gladly accepted and they can be made out to “Meds & Food for Kids” and in the notes section, please write: “Hurricane Matthew Relief.”
