This holiday season, Morgenstern's is partnering with the Ali Forney Center for the Give a Little, Get a Little campaign; purchase a Morgenstern’s Smooth Strawberry Sweatshirt and Morgenstern’s will give one away to homeless LGBTQ youth in an effort to help them keep warm during the cold winter months, when they are likely to be sleeping on the streets.
The Ali Forney Center is the largest agency dedicated to serving homeless and runaway LGBTQ youth in New York City and in the nation. Their mission is to help homeless LGBTQ youth, ages 16-24 to be safe, thrive, and become independent as they move from adolescence to adulthood by providing housing and a continuum of supportive and clinical services, in an effort to prepare them for successful independent living.
Morgenstern’s is proud to bring attention to the needs of these young people, especially during the holidays when they feel a greater sense of rejection and abandonment by their families, and therefore experience greater episodes of depression, anxiety, drug use and suicidal thoughts, which the Ali Forney Center works tirelessly to combat by providing a full continuum of care, including housing, needs assessment, legal, educational, vocational, medical and psychological services.
The retail price of the sweatshirt covers the printing and production of the sweatshirt being purchased, as well as the sweatshirt being donated. Morgenstern’s will not be collecting any profit from the sale of these items.
To purchase, visit us in-store at Morgenstern’s Finest Ice Cream or order via morgensternsnyc.com
