Residents can help make the holiday special for families in need on the North Fork by donating unwrapped toys, gifts for children, and other items at East on Main in Mattituck for the restaurant’s “Stuff-the-Trailer” charity event for Kait’s Angels. 

The goal of this gift drive is to stuff a trailer full of donations for children and families in need. Unwrapped toys, gift cards, non-perishable food items, and clothes (adult and child sizes) will be collected and put into the trailer. 

Donations will be accepted inside the restaurant until Dec. 12 and patrons of East on Main are eligible to receive 10% off an entree if they bring in a donation. 

“Community is very important to us at East on Main,” said co-owner Stephanie Piraino. “The Kait’s Angel mission statement speaks to the idea of paying it forward. Being able to host this event with Kait’s Angels allows us to open our doors and our hearts to individuals who are in need right in our community. This is an easy way to do something nice and come together.”

On Dec. 12, a holiday wrap-party and raffle will be held at East on Main. Proceeds from the raffle will be donated to Kait’s Angels.
