Roosevelt Island Volunteers And Food Donations Requested For December 15 Hurricane Sandy Relief Efforts In The Rockaways - Hot Meal Initiative Sponsored By RIRA And State Senator Jose Serrano
Received the following request from Roosevelt Island's State Senator Jose Serrano's office:
Senator Serrano and the Roosevelt Island Residents Association (RIRA) are co-sponsoring a Hurricane Sandy relief event in the Rockaways. The devastation caused by Hurricane Sandy has left many communities in New York still in need of resources. Senator Joseph Addabbo, who represents the Rockaways, has identified an area hit particularly hard by the storm, with an ongoing need for hot meals.State Senator Serrano's representative Justin Rush spoke to the December Roosevelt Island Residents Association (RIRA) about the Rockaway Hurricane Sandy Hot Meals effort. Here's what he had to say
Please consider joining us for the day or donating food that can be served as part of a hot meal. On the day of the event, volunteers will be driven from the Church of the Good Shepherd on Roosevelt Island to St. Camille's Church in Rockaway Park. Upon arriving in the Rockaways, volunteers will be joined by the Office of Senator Addabbo to distribute hot meals to members of the Rockaway community.
To register as a volunteer or make a donation of food or supplies, please contact Justin T. Rush at 212-828-5829 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
