Volunteer this Saturday via NYCC


Hello all: NYCC is organizing a huge volunteer event this Saturday, November 10, in Far Rockaway. Please see details below from Olivia - cars are needed most! Here are the details:

We are organizing a big day of volunteer canvassing this Saturday, November 10th.  We also try to send out volunteers during the week (including tomorrow, Friday), but are mainly looking for drivers with their own cars.  We are not organizing any volunteering this Sunday the 12th. 
If you are interested in donating supplies, we are still accepting flashlights, candles and batteries, nonperishable food, blankets, diapers and other essentials.  No Clothing will be accepted.  Donations can be sent or delivered to our Brooklyn office at:
New York Communities for Change,

We’re collecting monetary donations via this contribution page:
