Dear Wenshaw Park Neighbors,
I must thank everyone for the donations that we received. The generosity and kindness displayed by this neighborhood was truly amazing!
Yesterday I saw first hand the desperate situation down in Long Beach and can tell you that everything you have donated will be greatly appreciated. At this time, the Long Beach site will no longer be accepting clothes.
Thanks to the overwhelming response for help, they have received tons and tons of bags! If that situation changes, I will let you all know.
Hats, gloves and scarves are still needed due to the cold temperatures and approaching storm. They can be dropped off at 84 Winifred Drive in Merrick.
Again, thank you so much for all your help!
