By Ilija Sekulovski

Astoria, it’s the holiday season, and our favorite part of this time of year is that there’s so many chances to make a difference.

Between all the fun and parties, let’s also try to use this awesome time to help some of our neighbors and fellow New Yorker’s out. Here’s some things going on:

Life Health and Fitness Gym

Life Health and Fitness is no stranger to making a difference – they raise thousands annually for St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital, and now they’re putting together this drive!

The East River Kiwanis Club 

The service organization is holding  a toy drive to spread a little extra holiday cheer to  kids in need!

Give Me Astoria and The Pop Bar

That’s us! Each year the Pop Bar has a super fun butt ugly Christmas sweater party, and this year we teamed up with them! We wanted to make it extra special, so we’re collecting toys for Toys for Tots. If you come by with a toy, you get a free raffle ticket – and you get to put it under our tree!
