LITM Joins Effort To Assist Claremont Avenue Fire Victims With Drink & Donate Event

Jersey City is coming together to assist the Claremont Avenue fire victims with donations coming from City Hall and private-enterprise such as LITM. Starting Wednesday, April 10th, the bar will have two ways you can help the 52 people who were left homeless, a number that includes 22 children, in the 6-alarm blaze on Easter Sunday.

First, bring non-perishable food items, new and gently used clothing, toys, books, and school supplies to benefit those affected by this devastating event to the bar tomorrow.

Then, while you’re dropping off your donation, consider participating in LITM’s Drink & Donate night, with 10% of bar sales going to the Mayor’s Action Bureau. The event will run on Wednesday, April 11 from 5pm to when the bar closes. That’s a solid 9 hours of drinking, and all for a good cause.

The effort is nothing new for LITM which has previously organized and collaborated on charity events such as Peace by Piece’s Hijinks for the Homeless in January of this year, a fundraiser to benefit Garden Preschool cooperative, and “Rescue Me”, a group art show that benefited area animal adoption group See Spot Rescued.

LITM recently celebrated its 100th art opening on April 3, 2012 with work by Jersey City-based artist Gail Boykewich gracing the walls. This show will be up through the end of the month.
