LAST GASP: A Birthday Wish
Filed under: 11222, Greenpoint, Greenpoint Brooklyn, Greenpoint Magic
It does not take a rocket scientist to know times are tight for a lot of people in north Brooklyn. Even the Mister and I are feeling the pinch. But we have the presence of mind to know we are lucky. Very, VERY lucky. We have a roof over our heads; we have food (even if it means eating peanut butter and jelly sandwiches went rent time comes around). We have it good. Much better than a lot of our neighbors and friends. Which brings me to the purpose of this post.
Jennifer Aull— one of the co-pastors of the Greenpoint Reformed Church and overall great gal— turns 21 tomorrow! Just kidding: she’s turning 22. Anyhoo: her birthday is tomorrow and her wish (via Facebook) is as follows:
I believe that the Greenpoint Church food pantry changes lives. I know it has changed mine. Please make a donation in honor of my birthday.
I can personally attest that the Greenpoint Food Pantry has changed lives. What’s more I want the compassionate ladies of the Greenpoint Reformed Church to continue serving our neediest! Give what you can Greenpointers. Every little bit counts!*
*Those of you who are reading and possibly wondering (mom and dad— I shit you not my parents read this— I do not come from a broken home— I come from a more or less functional and intact family) what I want for my third fifth** wedding anniversary (which will come to pass on Halloween) it is this: donate to the Greenpoint Food Pantry. You can do so by clicking here.
**Yeah, I’m in trouble.
