So you’ve trimmed the tree and adorned your living room for the holiday, but you realize you have decorations left over. Instead of putting them back in the closet, why not share them with families who could use them?
That’s the idea behind the Helping Hands Rescue Mission’s annual Christmas Giving Table.
The mission is currently accepting gently used and new decorations at its headquarters at 225 Broadway in Huntington Station on Mondays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Tuesdays through Fridays from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
The mission shares donated decorations with families in need at no charge during its community outreaches from Tuesdays through Fridays.
Last Saturday, Rev. Kim Gambino, president of Helping Hands, said some 80 generous families had stopped by that morning to drop off Christmas decorations for families in need.
