Pres. Obama visited Staten Island, NY last Thursday November 14th to see the devastation on our block. He listened to our cause and fully supported it by taking a picture with our GoFundMe website and wishing us best of luck in our endeavor. Thank you so much for all those who have donated so far! Please help us reach our goal by sharing this page with your friends, family and co-workers via Facebook, Twitter & Emails. Together we can rebuild our church and our community one share and one dollar at a time, thanks for everything!

50% TO THE CHURCH OF ST. GEORGE

50% TO STATEN ISLAND RELIEF FUNDS

ALL DONATIONS ARE TAX-DEDUCTIBLE

 

On October 29th, Hurricane Sandy hit the NorthEast coast of America. 
The biggest devastation and the most deaths occurred in Staten Island, NY, one of the 5 boroughs of New York City.


Our church, St. George, is located on Cedar Grove Avenue in Staten Island. On that day the New Dorp Beach community was one of the hardest hit and sustained millions of dollars in  damages.  Most residents will qualify for FEMA aid but unfortunately for us, our church is a non-profit which falls under a business and FEMA does not give any aid to businesses.


Our current damages have been estimated to be $175,000 to rebuild. The youth of the church have taken it upon themselves to use the power of social media and do what we can to reach out to our extended families, friends and communities for help.


Whether you go to a church, a temple, a synagogue, mosque or a gurdwara, most of us have a place we can go to, to find peace in this crazy world. For us this was St. George. A 2nd home some might say, a place where everyone knows everyone, a place we have all grown up in and grown to love.  And for the first time in 34 years our church family has been displaced...


The children & the young adults of St. George are being very ambitious with a goal of raising $50,000 but we believe it can be done. We are reaching out to everyone we know to help us rebuild our church and our community.  Without our community and neighbors our church is nothing.  That is why 50% OF ALL MONEY collected will go directly to help our neighbors and our community who have been terribly affected by Hurricane Sandy in Staten Island. Between Project Hospitality, The Borough President’s Fund and other great local initiatives that we have looked into, we know the money will stay in Staten Island to help those who really need it.


Please help our cause in raising money for our church and for our neighbors and community by using the link above to donate whatever you can, anything helps whether it be $5 $25 or $100...don’t forget all donations are Tax-Deductible. (If you need a receipt or have any questions please don’t hesitate to message us through the contact button below or email us at HelpSaintGeorge@gmail.com)

Also please like our page on Facebook and stay connected with us on the road to recovery:  www.facebook.com/HelpTheIsland

P.S. This online fundraising campaign will end on Christmas 12/25/12, 21 Days to go!!!  


THANK YOU ALL FOR THE SUPPORT & GOD BLESS!!!
