Support Our Snack Bar & Kayak Rental Post-Flood

In August 2021, I embarked on a journey to create a unique family-operated Snack Bar and Kayak Rental on the picturesque west side of the Hudson River in the Lower Hudson Valley, NY. Our spot has since become a haven for families, adventurers, and nature lovers, offering breathtaking views of the Palisades and access to miles of serene hiking trails.

The January 13th, 2024, Flood
Our business was severely hit by a flood, causing extensive damage to all major appliances in the snack bar and destroying the infrastructure of our kayak rental, including kayaks and life vests.

Our Response
While our seasonal business means many are still unaware of the extent of the damage, we've taken the first steps towards recovery, including consulting repair specialists and discarding unsalvageable items. However, the path to full restoration is long and filled with challenges.

Our Plea
We're setting a fundraising goal of $5,000 to replace essential equipment, repair damages, and enhance our resilience against future calamities. This fund will directly support:

Your Impact
Your support transcends monetary donations. Each donation is a step towards not only rebuilding what was lost but fortifying our dream against future adversities.

A Message From Alex
With your help, we can rebuild stronger, ensuring longevity of the business. Your support means the world to us and the community we serve.

1. Donate if you can.
2. If you can't, share the word on whatever social media platforms you use.
3. Spread the word by email, phone calls, good old fashioned face-to-face conversation to all your kayak friends and family who might be in a position to help.
