Make it Montague also marks the launch of Montague Matters, a month-long kindness campaign to collect backpacks, lunch boxes, pens, pencils and other school supplies to benefit Brooklyn’s District 13 school kids in need. District 13 encompasses Fort Greene, Clinton Hill and Bedford Stuyvesant, along Flatbush Avenue Extension and Brooklyn Heights. Everyone is encouraged to bring a school supply, or new or gently used backpack or lunch box to donate. Items donated in Montague Matters drop boxes will be confidentially distributed to students every week by District 13 staff.
It’s a great opportunity to come together outside as a neighborhood, have fun, listen to music, eat and drink, enjoy a little local culture and to support the shops, restaurants and businesses on the block. There’ll be something for everyone to enjoy. And, everything is free.
During Make it Montague, stores, businesses and restaurants will offer special discounts, gifts with purchase, complimentary refreshments and giveaways. New activities are being added daily. For a complete list, visit www.montaguebid.com
