HopeNYC is preparing to make this the best Christmas ever…for children overseas.

Build an Ark was the theme of HopeNYC’s 2017 Toy Drive! Hopers picked up a hammer and worked together to raise the funds to provide tons of toys (possibly an Ark-full)

I noticed the genuine cheerfulness in giving until the drive was over. Putting a smile on a child’s face has always been an important mission at HopeNYC. A child may be receiving their first toy this year. The toys will be off to the Caribbean this Christmas: Trinidad, Guyana, Jamaica, and Belize! High quality popular brand new toys. As someone would say “Toys you would buy for your own children.”

What makes this year even more exciting is that some of the Hopers will be going to the

countries to distribute these toys in person.

Special gifts were given to every participant of the Toy Drive so they won’t forget the time they got to Build An Ark.

HopeNYC has big plans for Christmas even in New York! Read my previous blog about the Christmas parade. Look out for info this upcoming month on www.HopeNYC.com or on the Facebook Page: http://www.Facebook.com/HopeNYC

A peek into HopeNYC’s 2017 Christmas Parade!

You would hear the mechanical melody of drilling, pounding and jigsawing to the sounds of Christmas music if you took a walk inside HopeNYC. Hopers are prepping and constructing daily in the warehouse to build the most spectacular unthinkable parade floats! These floats will beautifully stroll down the streets of Rockaway blvd in lights and tell the true meaning of Christmas! You may also see familiar favorite characters and Christmas traditions.

Come be part of the celebration at HopeNYC’s 2017 Christmas Parade on Sunday December 3rd at 5pm! The route starts on 130th street Rockaway blvd and ends at HopeNYC with extra festivities! You have early notice so come get a good view and some great pictures!

A Quick Trip To Paris

Okay so I actually didn’t go to Paris but I stepped out of New York! I did not catch a flight or lug a tote. Here at Compass Cafe, you set foot in another country! Come in and enjoy a sip of something from overseas.

Where will you go today?

Paris? The place where you can get coffee pressed to perfection? Not to mention neon macaroons bursting with color.

Guatemala? A sip of something Spanish while being allured by its amazing aroma.

Haiti? Enjoy an aromatic earthy blend and get some energy from the Petite Goave coffee. A six year old girl from this country sparked the idea of Compass Cafe a few years ago.
