Christmas on Merrick is an annual outreach effort hosted by The Greater Allen A.M.E. Cathedral of New York. In its 6th year, Christmas on Merrick provides us with an amazing opportunity to display compassion towards our neighbors during a time of charitable giving, remembrance and sacrifice. With the generous donations from our sponsors and congregation, we have been able to distribute toys, clothes, food and personal care items to more than 1,500 families annually.
Past sponsors for Christmas on Merrick include: Target, City Harvest, ELF Cosmetics, Feed the Children, Toys4Tots, Royal Waste Inc. and Regal Recycling Co. Inc. Media sponsors include: WLIB/WBLS.
This humanitarian effort brings hope to families that are poverty-stricken, cannot afford to feed their families or provide basic necessities to their families during this holiday season.
