Dear friends,

Most of you are far away, and for those in NY, many of you don’t have the time to go out and volunteer. HOWEVER, you can contribute here and make a difference and we will use 100% of the proceeds to purchase supplies and bring them to the Rockaways ourselves. We were there last weekend and were so deeply touched by what’s going on. It’s beyond words how desperate the situation out there really is. We had the chance to help and volunteer and see a few local organizations in action filling the void left by the Red Cross and FEMA. There are thousands of residents there without electricity, gas, water, heat, food and healthcare for OVER a week now. Many are elderly, ill and pregnant and are trapped and stranded in high-rise public housing complexes in horrible sanitary conditions. The situation out there is on the verge of becoming a tragedy, especially given the winter storm coming in the next couple of days!

All supplies including water, flashlights, blankets, ensure, baby diapers, etc. will be delivered mostly to the Rockaway Youth Task Force (www.rytf.org), who is doing an amazing job at HAND DELIVERING them to people who can't leave their homes and really need food and other supplies. If you prefer to drop supplies at our place in Brooklyn, PM me on Facebook. Time is of the essence and your contribution will really make a difference.
