Saturday Donation Sites and Astoria Rideshares for Sat and Sun

posted over 1 year ago by Astoria Recovers Admin

Dear Astoria Community,

We have two live Google Docs for people to self-organize rideshares to the Rockaways. Our main drop off point is Yana at the intersection of Beach 113 and Rockaway Beach Blvd. LANDMARK: Look for Solar panels -- & half the street is burnt to the ground. Point people on the ground are Diego and Sofia.

ONLY GO TO ROCKAWAY WITH FULL CARS! If you have room for more folks or supplies, please first contact Neha in Jackson Heights or Leni in Astoria to inquire about picking up more supplies and people - and please check the rideshare docs for folks who still need a ride. Don't waste a drop of fuel!!

Comments

  • My experience dropping off supplies today in the Rockaways was that basically nobody wants any more clothes of any kind. Blankets, maybe -- but no more clothes. Food, water, toiletries and (yes) batteries are very popular -- although Yana said that they did not need any more supplies at all. Also, many places are shutting down by 4pm.

    Does anyone know where they DO need clothes (whether in the Rockaways or elsewhere)? I still have several bags full of them.
