GO FUND ME FOR NEIGHBORS IN NEED. Help us get the basics like food and infant supplies and buy protective gear required by NYS for volunteers and seniors and people with compromised health. Pitch ($$) in and pass on the word. https://www.gofundme.com/f/fort-greeneclinton-hill-support-neighbors-in-need?utm_source=customer&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=p_cp+share-sheet.
Those are typical of the uses for the funds we are seeking :
We are just purchasing $9,000 worth of protection gear for seniors and people with compromised health who should wear masks if they have anyone, even family, in their homes and for local workers who are not adequately protected. Last Saturday we also worked with a coalition of local groups to deliver food to 500 families tomorrow. Building on the Myrtle Food Pantry, One Community and Brooklyn Partners developed the capacity to deliver to 200 seniors and other vulnerable people in public housing who are homebound due to the quarantine.
