Volunteer Needs for Saturday
posted over 2 years ago by SIrecovers
Here are the places that need volunteers to help with the recovery in Staten Island today. If you are in Brooklyn, we are directing all volunteer to our main distribution sites, 5406 4th Ave in Sunset Park or 520 Clinton Ave in Clinton Hill (see below). Please note that you DO NOT need to sign up or ask what time to come.
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. Needs: car and bike deliverers, co-pilots, servers.

Staten Island Clean-Up
On Saturday at 9am, Assemblywoman Nicole Malliotakis will be holding a clean-up in Staten Island. People will gather at the end of New Dorp Lane and Cedar Grove Avenue which is located just east of New Dorp High School (465 New Dorp Lane). Volunteers should bring any tools that may have (rakes, shovels, push brooms, work gloves, trash bags). Those who are unable to work the clean-up can donate equipment (brooms, rakes, garbage bags, shovels) at Monsignor Farrell High School at 2900 Amboy Road.
