Hello Roosevelt Island family,More on the Roosevelt Island Hurricane Relief efforts to the Rockaways from previous post. Also here's how Hurricane Sandy impacted communities.
I hope everyone had an amazing time eating, cooking, eating, hugging, eating, laughing, eating, traveling, eating, eating, ...
I know I did and I'm thankful for the family who invited us yesterday at their table. Family we did not know few days ago and made us feel at home... I just want to remind you that not everyone is as lucky as we are and for many people life has a different meaning today than few weeks ago before the storm hit. While we are getting ready for the holiday season, others are cleaning up the mess and trying to make a sense of why how and what to do next. Please meet us Sunday Morning between 8 and 9:15 am in front of PS 217 with your donations. Here is the list of what these folks need this week, but again anything you'll bring will be gladly accepted.
Food (never enough)
Cleaning supplies and gloves
Shopping carts (I saw Traders has them for 12.99 or sometimes you can find them for 10 bucks)
We will deliver on Monday in the Rockaways. If you want to help let us know.
Enjoy the rest of the week end and see you Sunday. In the meantime share this email with your friends, visit out Facebook page "Roosevelt Island Community" and post it on your timeline. Thank YOU !
