Help the families of Hemlock Street

On Saturday November 22, 2014, a fire on Hemlock Street in Cypress Hills, Brooklyn displaced over 40 people from three houses and injured 5 firefighters. These families are left with nothing.  Four of the affected families have children at Public School 7 and the Cypress Hills Child Care Center.  The Cypress Hills Local Development Corporation is sponsoring this effort to help these four families get back on their feet.  We have a goal to raise $8000 before the holidays to be divided equally between the families.  Please help!
