As you all may know, there are still much to be done here in NYC after getting hit by hurricane Sandy couple weeks ago and then the nor’easter last week.
There are quite a lot of ways one can do to help out, either donating cash or clothes or supplies or food or help clean up or simply spreading the word that there are many people still without electricity and heat.
Ever since the hurricane hit, Allison Robicelli has been tweeting valuable information and coordinating through all forms of social media to get help where they are needed the most. One of the big things that came out of her efforts was the start of the Bay Ridge Cares Serving Meals that Heal. Starting today, they will be collecting food and cooking hot meals for people in need. You can sign up at the Occupy Sandy website and put “BAY RIDGE
CARES” in the MISCELLANEOUS NOTES as there is no check box for Bay Ridge yet.
Please come out and help, especially if you know how to (safely) use a knife. They need people for Monday thru Saturday from 9a-1p, 1-5p, or full days. Bay Ridge Cares is located at Saint Mary and is on the corner of 81st and Ridge Blvd. in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn.
