Calling all Bikes – Help Red Hook

November 3, 2012

I’m organizing a group to bring supplies to the Red Hook Initiative by bike on Sunday, November 4th.  If you have a cargo bike or the ability to haul a lot of stuff, please join us!  Even if you can just carry something in a basket or backpack that works.

The Red Hook Initiative needs:

  • Cleaning supplies (mops, gloves, rags, buckets)
  • Water
  • Hot meals/prepared foods

Please buy these things on your own and bring them to our meeting place tomorrow.

We will meet at noon at the corner of 5th Avenue and 9th Street in Park Slope in front of the Chase Bank and roll out to 402 Van Brunt together.  Please leave a comment to let me know if you can make it.  Otherwise, just show up tomorrow.

    I assume this is the 5th Ave and 9th St in Brooklyn? I’m coming from Manhattan so I was hoping it was the 5th and 9th in Manhattan… Let me know!

    Yep, in Park Slope.

    too bad there is no bike path on the Verrazano Bridge. With all their damage, and feeling trapped on their island, a caravan of bikes full of help would have been a super help (and PR move).

    Doug, I’m in Brooklyn Heights, so prob. makes more sense to meet you at Van Brunt – yes? I think i have some hand warmers if you think those would be useful. Maybe some candles, too.

      Hi, Peter, I’m in Bklyn Heights, too. Let’s meet and go from here?
      Say, corner of Clark and Henry at noon?

        Update: I was up early and am loaded up and ready to go, so am heading down there now directly, with plans to volunteer into the afternoon. Hope to cross paths down there! Great initiative, Doug. Thanks for getting this started!
