Culture on the Cheap
Bad News: Lest you are not already aware this upcoming Sunday the NYC Marathon will plough its way through our neighborhood leaving yet another layer of debris on our already less than tidy streets.
Good News: The Greenpoint Reformed Church will be hosting a bake sale whose proceeds will benefit their increasingly popular Soup Kitchen and Food Pantry.

We are taking advantage of the fact that the New York City marathon runs virtually in front of the church by hosting a bake sale to benefit our hunger programs on Sunday from 10am to 2pm.Â Greenpoint is a popular marathon watching spot and we plan on a significant turn out.Â Someone has generously offered to loan us a booth tent, so we will be there rain or shine.
Here’s how you can help:
Come to the church on Saturday 3- 5pm to help us ice and bag the 200 or so cookies we will have made for the bake sale.
Bake something yourself and drop off your donation on Saturday 3-5pm or early Sunday morning at the church.
Work the bake sale booth.Â We need two people for each of the following shifts: 9-11am (set up will happen between 9 and 10), 11am-12:30pm, 12:30-2pm.Â Of course, those of us who are a part of a church community that worships on Sundays will have a hard time working the 10am to 12pm shift, so we are particularly in need of volunteers for that shift.
