Christmas on Merrick
Christmas on Merrick is an annual outreach effort hosted by The Greater Allen A.M.E. Cathedral of New York. In its 7th 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: City Harvest, Feed the Children, Toys R’ Us, Toys For Tots, Emblem Health and New York Mets. Media sponsors include Queens Tribune, and 1190/WLIB.
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.
Our annual Christmas on Merrick outreach event has garnered national media attention on news outlets including, CBS, NBC, and NY1. The event was broadcast LIVE on 1190/WLIB and covered by The Press of Southeast Queens.
