BENEFITING: SAMARITANS OF NEW YORK INC
New York is a crazy busy, bustling place. 8 million people trying to work and live and stay out of the bike lanes. As far as I see it, that's 8 million people to keep emotionally supported, mentally strong and most importantly - alive.
Samaritans offers a service vital to our community: free, 24 hour emotional support to New Yorkers of every race, culture, religion, income level, sexual orientation, and borough. Compassionate trained hotline volunteers give people a chance to be heard and talk their thoughts, feelings and fears. People in crisis are given a chance to pause, evaluate their options and feel the comfort of a voice on the other end of the line, letting them know they're not alone.
Join me as I represent my community on the Lower East Side to help pay NYC's most important phone bill!
