Want to make a year-end charitable gift that counts? While many of us are feasting away this holiday season, others in Brooklyn are going hungry. Donate this holiday season to a local organization that provides meals to the hungry in Brooklyn and New York City. All of the organizations listed below are non-profit, which means your contribution is also tax deductible. You can give on your own, or give it as a holiday gift in someone else's honor.
You can donate to the well established Park Slope organization, CHIPS. Founded in 1971, CHiPS (Park Slope Christian Help, Inc.) has, with help from local volunteers and faith organizations, prepared and served to the needy free hot, nutritious meals, and also offered seasonal clothing, emergency pantry items, and shelter for young mothers and their children.
CHIPS was founded by members of the St. Francis Xavier Church who were inspired by the spirit of the Vatican II Council. In 2004, the Groundswell Mural Organization commissioned a mural on the building’s south side. “Voiced Her’d: I Deal, I Dream, I Do” was painted by a team of female artists
Located at 200 Fourth Avenue, Park Slope Brooklyn.
