posted over 2 years ago by Astoria Recovers Admin
We will be coordinating rideshares from the Greek Community Center in Astoria on Saturday. Details to follow presently. Stay tuned.
Rockaway Waterfront Alliance
Need volunteers to: knock on people's doors, help distributing meals, setting up a restaurant-style food station in the firehouse, digging people's cars out of the sand, helping people get in and out of the Rockaways, etc. Keep in mind: there is NO electricity, access to gas, etc. But volunteers are urgently needed 24/7!
Beach 59th Firehouse 58-03 Rockaway Beach Bvd Any time! firstname.lastname@example.org 718-327-5919
Yana/Store Front Community Center
Type of work: Distributing hot meals, canned goods, clothes and toiletries. Sorting donations, preparing food, manning the cell phone powering station, pumping people's basements, cyphening gas out of broken down cars, helping neighbors with cleaning, debris removal, etc. How Many People: Everyone who comes will be put to work here or elsewhere in the Rockaways What tools/supplies to bring: Rubber boots, warm clothes (it's getting chilly out there), maybe your own flashlight if you intend on staying past sundown Contact person: Sofía Gallisá Muriente Any other background notes: If you want to bring donations with you, focus on simple, easily accesible urgent necessities like candles, flashlights, batteries, blankets and socks.

Volunteers to help cleaning out the restaurant and preparing it for serving food.
96th St & Rockaway Blvd 347-213-7466
UPDATE: I am told that the Q53 that is in service and normally would go to Rockaway but I believe it is only going to Crossbay Bay Boulevard to Pitkin Avenue, this might help with transportation for folks who are already on their way.
