Staten Island Recovers: Friday efforts

Needs: car and bike deliverers, co-pilots, servers

   on site food organization for deliveries
   donation in-take
   people to canvas communities

Crossroads Church @ the Lane Theater 168 New Dorp Lane: 12-6pm

We will be working out of the Crossroads location as a place from which to organize then deliver by car/bike: food, cleaning supplies, towels, snacks, and information to residents in Midland Beach, New Dorp, Oakwood, Great Kills.

We will be canvassing the community to figure out larger scale community needs including generators, tree removal, pumping, and other needs.

We will accept donations of all kinds at this location starting Friday. We will also accept donations at Unitarian Church of Staten Island at 312 Fillmore St from 12pm-3pm daily.

Our urgent need is for a grill with a side broiler/burner at the Crossroads Church location. We will return the grill to you as soon as you want it back and as clean as possible. Please test to see that it works and mark it with your name/phone/address.

Our second urgent need is a space from which to serve meals/organize on the South Shore. We would like to partner with a community group/church or even a private home that would allow us to use their garage or other space. We are happy to help in clean up of the space in exchange for the space.

  • Hi, I have a decent sized grill, with a burner. I'm in Kensington, BK. If you guys can pick it up and get it back to me, I'd gladly loan it to you. Alternately, I'd be happy to buy one for you guys at Lowes. I can get a 10% discount there, too. Would need some help getting over there and getting it to you. Give me a call - 732.646.0031

  • Is anyone getting any helpful responses? Because fuel is limited in almost all the boroughs our best bet is to either car pool or take a bus. With this ridiculous marathon happening our mayor is making it that more difficult to help out. If anyone has information pls email. Josephine.....Itzjojoxox@aol.com. Thank you!

  • Organizers, please call up radio station and tell them phone numbers and addresses where people should go for help and to volunteer. I've been listening to NPR NY -- and not one mention of any truly useful info. Radio right now is the only info source for many right now. I don't get it!
