Help Red Hook and Sunset Park
Via Rock Camp for Girls, which is helping some of the communities in Red Hook and Sunset Park that have been affected by Sandy. If you have a cargo bike or big sturdy bicycle capable of making deliveries, please help out tomorrow. Here’s how to get involved:
1) Drop off donations at Willie Mae Music Lab. We are officially accepting goods donations at 87 Irving Place in Clinton Hill, Brooklyn (between Fulton and Putnam). You can drop off items starting now until 6:30pm TODAY (FRIDAY).
Items that are high priority (via https://redhook.recovers.org/):
-already prepared food (including food for children)
-baby products (diapers, wipes, etc.)
-batteries, flashlights, candles, power strips
-toiletries (including toilet paper and paper towels)
-utensils such as spoons and bowls
-jugs of water
2) Join our delivery corps! Given the gas shortage, we are hoping to deliver any goods donations via bicycle to Sunset Park/Red Hook. Have a bicycle? Have panniers, a bike trailer, a giant backpack, a bike rack/bungie cords? Have a car with gas in it?
Join us SATURDAY NOVEMBER 3 at 11AM at 87 Irving Place with your bike and bags to pack everything up and start hauling it wherever they need it most in Brooklyn. We will leave Music Lab as soon as we get everything packed up. If you plan to help haul things, please email firstname.lastname@example.org so I know who to expect.
Once we deliver the goods, we’re hoping to stick around and help out on the ground. More info on where we’ll end up as things evolve at various local shelters.
Thank you for anything/all that you are doing to help support those affected by the storm, and thank you in advance for helping spread the word about our donation drop-off center.
