HURRICANE SANDY RELIEF
TUESDAY 11/6 UPDATE
Please circulate to your friends, neighbors, business associates
Thanks to the generosity of our friends and neighbors, we have sent over 500 bags of supplies directly to storm victims. We are now focusing on collecting donations so supplies can be purchased cheaply and in bulk, and delivered directly to where needed.
Our focus: Midland Staten Island, Red Hook Brooklyn, Breezy Point Queens, Coney Island Brooklyn, and other neighborhoods devastated by loss of life and homes, flooding, fire and power outages.
With a powerful nor'easter due Wednesday with more flooding, gusting winds and frigid temperatures - as well as heavy rain and additional power outages, the need is even more urgent than ever for us to act now.
Please make tax-deductible donations to "The Gramercy Park Block Association", with "Neighbors Helping Neighbors" in the memo.
Drop off or mail to:
The Gramercy Park Block Association
34 Gramercy Park East
New York, NY 10003
