Local LoveSaturday December 2nd 11:00 AM- 2:00 PM Teach your child to care for the elderly this holiday season with Mommies Heart to Heart at Saint Ann’s Home in Jersey City. Enjoy Russian dance by children and interacting with the grandmas with educational toys from Discovery Toys! Bring a holiday card or baked good to cheer up the residents. Children of all ages welcome!

Sunday December 3rd 9:30 AM – 2:30 PM  @ the W and 12:30 PM – 5:30 PM @ Pilsener House Join a group that Mac and I truly believe in CASA  of Hudson County at the W or Biergarten in Hoboken for photos with Santa on Sunday December 3rd and support their good works- $50 gets you 5-10 digital images and $150 gets you priority access and the great feeling you get from supporting a worthy cause.

Sunday December 3rd 12:00 PM – 3:00 PM We’ve been supporters of the Liberty Humane Society for many years and love the work they do- visit this Sunday and get a pet photo with Santa for a $20 donation to the shelter. Now THAT’s something to bark about! As a matter of fact- check their wish list before you go- and bring a “gift” they’d really appreciate your help.

Saturday December 9th 3:00 PM-5:30 PM Join Little Hoboken  at Birch in Hoboken for their “Strong as a Mother” fundraiser to help a local mum and her family in their battle to beat a stage 4 cancer diagnosis. It’s a family event with entertainment, crafts and treats for all as well as a raffle to benefit the family with over $10,000 in prizes!

Sunday December 10th 2:00 PM-4:00 PM Little Madison Rose captivated Hoboken last year with her strength and determination and she continues to touch the hearts of our community. Black Rail and Grapeful are proud to present “Spirits & Cheer for The Madison Rose Heart Project.” All proceeds from the event will go directly to the foundation to support its efforts in the CHD community. This event is limited to 50 adults over 21. There will be wine, coffee, cocktails and small bites as well as raffle giveaways and gifts and goodies from around the Hoboken area.

Wednesday December 13th 6:30-9:30 Support the amazing work done by the Hoboken Homeless Shelter at their annual auction and tricky tray at Birch along with drink specials and light appetizers. Come with your friends for a night of fun and support the Shelter’s mission in this winter season.

Tuesday December 19th 6:00 PM- 10:00 PM Join Hoboken Girl for a fun evening of holiday shopping at the first-ever Hoboken Holiday {Night} Market.  Over 20 local vendors and boutiques will be at the W Hotel selling unique gift items where you’re sure to find something for everyone on your list. This event is the perfect way to personalize your holiday shopping and support local vendors. Proceeds from all ticket sales will go to support the Dustin and Daniel Friedland scholarship foundation. The Friedland brothers were both Hoboken residents. Tragically, Dustin passed away in 2013 and Daniel passed away in 2017. The money will be allocated to students at Hoboken High School to promote higher education opportunities.

Monday December 25th 7:00 PM-10:00 PM Join Feed JC on Christmas Day to help feed and clothe over 500 of Jersey City’s less fortunate. They will have teams at St. Lucy’s shelter, the Junction, Journal Square and driving through the city handing out hot meals, care packages and warm clothing. Their goal is to give those in need a true holiday experience by not only giving gifts, but genuinely taking time to connect over conversation. You can donate funds for a meal (just $5 buys someone a hot dinner!) or give gently used winter clothing for distribution or volunteer to staff an event – email FeedJerseyCity@gmail.com for details.
