Please join me in using my birthday to raise money for a great cause.
As many know, Hurricane Sandy left the biggest impact on New York and New Jersey residents -- with residents in low-lying areas continuing to struggle with restoration of power and heat -- parts of some communities will not be the same again. Much of my Brooklyn neighborhood of Red Hook remained without heat and power in many parts for over two weeks -- and some of the development along the pier front that has lead a resurgence of the neighborhood is uncertain.
I ask for $35 for my 35th -- or whatever you can do!
Your $$ will go to The Spanish Speaking Elderly Council of Brooklyn, which runs the Red Hook Senior Center. The Senior Center serves the poorest Red Hook seniors with meals, counseling services, etc. -- and will continue to be helpful to those who find it hardest to get around to access services outside the neighborhood.
Pleease consider adding your support of any amount.
Thank you in advance for your support.
