On the Road to Recovery: Assist with Sandy Relief Efforts on Sunday

From council member Stephen T. Levin 

Hurricane Sandy brought devastation to so many of New York City’s coastal areas. As many neighborhoods go back to work, the hardest hit communities are just beginning their clean up efforts. For many neighborhoods, the road to recovery will last months, if not years. You’ve already been incredibly generous– you’ve donated food, water and other supplies, you’ve volunteered at our local shelters (often on the long, overnight shifts), you’ve cooked hot meals, and you’ve used what precious gas you had left to shuttle supplies to the Rockaways, Coney Island, Gerritsen Beach, and Staten Island. Our work continues, though.

Join me this Sunday, November 11th to help with clean-up efforts in Far Rockaway. A bus will pick up volunteers at two locations:

-Church of the Ascension- 122 Java Street (between Manhattan and Franklin) in Greenpoint

-District Office- 410 Atlantic Avenue (between Bond and Nevins) in Boerum Hill
Please arrive by 9:00am to board the bus in Greenpoint.  If you would like to board the bus at 410 Atlantic Avenue, please arrive by 9:30amSPACE IS LIMITED- RSVP IS REQUIRED. The bus will return at 4:00pm. Please dress for the weather in clothing that you don’t mind getting dirty. If you have cleaning supplies to donate (masks, garbage bags, brooms, etc), please bring those along. Bring your own water and snacks.
