Manhattan Emergency Shelter is celebrating the holidays with a long-running program to serve their residents
Volunteer and Donations Coordinator Adrina Beltran visited with the Greater Manhattan Community Foundation on Monday and explains their annual Adopt an Ornament program.
The staff then takes the lists made by the shelter residents, wraps the presents, and distribute them on Christmas morning. Beltran says this event is important to her, given her own personal history with the shelter.
The tree is located west of the Hilton Garden Inn at 416 S 4th Street. Anyone interested in sponsoring an ornament can visit the shelter between 8:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m.
