1. THE RED HOOK INITIATIVE is collecting specific items for Red Hook residents who are still without power and running water and will be for several days more (Red Hook is a Zone A area). We are told that these folks are in great need.
Specifically they are collecting: water, toilet paper, paper towels, wipes in small packages, diapers, paper towels, band-aids, aspirin, inhalers, 6 individual coolers filled with ice for families who need to store insulin, flashlights (ideally loaded with batteries), batteries, aluminum foil, matches, and tons of plastic bags (like from the supermarket).
Drop off locations for the Red Hook Initiative:
767 Hicks Street (at their location in Red Hook)
343 Court Street at the Mormon Church in Carroll Gardens on FRIDAY BETWEEN 12 PM & 5 PM. (It’s at the corner of Union and Court Street). Drop-offs will be taken promptly to the Red Hook Initiative.
You can also donate funds directly to the Red Hook Initiative here.
