Help Throw a Christmas Bash for EMMA’s Kids

December 12th, 2015

Help throw the 2nd annual EMMA Neighborhood Christmas Bash
By Mike Governale

A Rochester city neighborhood is asking for our help external link this year to throw a Christmas Bash for kids in need. EMMA (East Main Mustard and Atlantic) external link is a sub-section of the Beechwood neighborhood. Like the adjacent NOTA and Culver University East neighborhoods, this neighborhood is mostly an old industrial area, but there are some 367 households with over 200 school age children living here, and an extremely high rate of poverty…

Help throw the 2nd annual EMMA Neighborhood Christmas Bash
The EMMA Neighborhood & Business Association has made it their goal to give gifts to every child in the neighborhood.

Help throw the 2nd annual EMMA Neighborhood Christmas Bash
At their first Christmas Bash last year the neighborhood was able to give about 500 gifts to over 150 kids thanks to donations from local businesses and community members.

Help throw the 2nd annual EMMA Neighborhood Christmas Bash
This year they’d like be able to do the same (or better), but their Gofundme campaign external link is stuck at $50 and needs a jumpstart.

Help throw the 2nd annual EMMA Neighborhood Christmas Bash
The party is open to all EMMA and Beechwood residents and will be held on December 18, 5:00 – 8:00 p.m. at the Togetherness in Love Community Center (1443 East Main Street).

Help throw the 2nd annual EMMA Neighborhood Christmas Bash
We’d really like to help these guys out. So if you’re looking for a way to give back this season, please visit their Gofundme campaign external link and give what you can.

Roland Williams, who lived on Herkimer Street, grew up to become a Super Bowl Champion with the St. Louis Rams in Super Bowl XXXIV.

    Thank you sharing this opportunity to help. Because of personal crap, I haven’t been able to do a drive at work this year.
