Fire on Post Ave in Washington Heights

Anoche nuestros vecinos en 74-78 Post Avenue sufrieron un incendio devastador. 35 adultos y 16 niños han sido desplazados y muchos lo han perdido todo. Tenemos la bendición de que nadie resultó gravemente herido. A medida que estas familias comienzan a reconstruir, nos hemos unido para ayudar con las necesidades básicas, alimentos, ropa y muebles. Debido a las preocupaciones con COVID-19, no estamos aceptando donaciones materiales y, en cambio, le pedimos a nuestra comunidad que sea lo más generosa posible dada la dura realidad financiera que todos enfrentamos. Durante estos tiempos difíciles, nos apoyamos mutuamente, su donación será de gran ayuda para estas familias. ¡Gracias!

Last night our neighbors at 74-78 Post Avenue suffered a devastating fire. 35 adults and 16 children have been displaced and many lost everything. We are blessed that no one was seriously hurt or injured. As these families begin to build back we have come together to assist with basic necessities, food, clothing, and furniture. Due to concerns with COVID-19 we are not taking material donations and instead ask our community to be as generous as possible given the hard financial realities we are all facing. During these difficult times, we only have each other to lean on, your donation will go a long way in supporting these families. Thank you!53766142_160997398636431_r.jpeg
