Douglas Elliman team launches holiday drive to benefit Long Island Coalition for the Homeless

This Giving Tuesday, Noelle Lambert and The Bryn Elliott Team announced their first ever Holiday Donation Drive, benefitting the Long Island Coalition for the Homeless, an organization that strives to end homelessness on Long Island, and to alleviate the issues associated with homelessness and poverty for homeless and at risk persons in Nassau and Suffolk Counties.

“I’ve always been passionate about helping others, but more specifically assisting the homeless is really important to me,” said Noelle Lambert, licensed real estate salesperson with Douglas Elliman Real Estate. “When you strip away all the excess and get down to the basics – the minimum that one should have in order to put their best foot forward every day – what remains is a home, along with food, and the like. There are countless people struggling and facing homelessness right now on Long Island and it just feels like the right thing to do to help them.”

The drive will run through Dec. 19 and has five drop-off locations throughout Long Island. The drive is collecting non-perishable (boxed and canned) food Items, shampoo & conditioner, soap, toothpaste & toothbrushes, deodorant, gently used or new winter coats and clothing and new socks.

“This year the organization is desperately in need of nonperishable food and personal care items,” said Bryn Elliott, licensed associate real estate broker with The Bryn Elliott Team at Douglas Elliman Real Estate. “They’re also looking for clothing, socks and winter coats. We’re hopeful that this drive will make a difference by helping people who need it; especially during the toughest time of the year to be homeless.”

“We thank everyone in advance for their participation, because every donation truly does make a difference,” said Noelle. “We’re so appreciative of each business that has let us use their establishment as a drop-off location.” If you have any questions, please contact Noelle Lambert at 631-478-3819 or Bryn Elliott at 631-332-8899.
