As many of you know, Hurricane Sandy has devastated the areas of Brooklyn (Coney Island, Breezy Point, Rockaways, Howard Beach/Brighton Beach), Staten Island, Long Beach Long Island and New Jersey. For the past week, I've been heading to the store and buying supplies for people-socks, soap, scope, underwear, cleaning supplies, gloves for workers, etc. I've even been cooking trays of food to bring to people. We are officially at capacity on clothing donations and people are still clearing out their homes, displaced and don't know where to start. Many of you have asked me for a way to get money to me so that I can continue to buy supplies to directly give to people, gift cards or get basic medicinal needs.
So I set up this page to help with that. ANY amount helps-if 10 people don't get a Starbucks coffee, then we have $50 right there which is boxes of diapers, contractor bags, baby wipes, hot meals. I will be posting receipts of all the items bought with this money AND pictures of the people they go to DIRECTLY help.
This wll be a long process. Winter is coming. We'll be having events to keep up the work. So, please consider donating when you can.
