The Builders Club of The After 3 Program are on the move again. This group of kids are asking local merchants to display a donation can for their current fundraiser, “Help Save the North Shore Shelter.”
The North Shore Shelter is housed in the Presbyterian Church on the corners of School and North Streets in Glen Cove. The purpose of this shelter is to house the homeless men of the community during the cold months of November through March.
The shelter is supported by local organizations that prepare food every night and also helps maintain the health of these men during their stay by offering medical and dental checkups and substance/alcohol abuse counseling, among other services that are in danger of losing funding.
The kids are compassionate to these men and want to help where they can. Earlier this year the first group solicited donations of food and money which they put to good use by making the men lunch.
This fundraiser will run through the end of May, and as of press time, their cans are currently on display at Justin’s Toys, Cove Deli, Page One, The View Grill and Andros Grill. If you’d like to make a donation or display a can, please contact the Builders Club advisor at 516-669-1908; a can will be dropped off to those businesses who want one.
