Culture on the Cheap
TOMORROW: Kent Street Festival
I am certain most of you, my fellow Greenpointers, are well aware of this event. Rather I’d like to make you aware of a particular vendor. Ann Kansfield writes:
Greenpoint has come together to help feed hungry folks on Wednesday nights. Currently, we serve yummy hot meals to upwards of 80 people. As the weather gets colder, weâ€™re anticipating this number might increase.
To help raise funds for the soup kitchen, thereâ€™s going to be a fabulous bake sale at this Saturdayâ€™s Kent Street Festival (Sept. 27). But we need your help. It would look really ridiculous to have a bake sale with nothing to sell. Please! All you bakers out there – if you could make some items for the sale, it would be tremendously helpful. You can drop them off at the church (136 Milton St) Friday night from 6-9pm or at the bake sale table on Kent Street on Saturday, September 27th from 9am to 12pm.
For those of you who want to buy some of these yummy treats, please visit our table at the Kent St. Festival – itâ€™s happening on Kent St. between Manhattan and Franklin. And if you’re reading this and could help us by passing this message on to your friends and neighbors, we would really appreciate it.Â We need all the help we can get – both at the bake sale and going forward this winter.Â The more people who are aware of the soup kitchen the better.
I agree. The economy isn’t getting any better, folks. Until our government decides to succor the truly needy instead of multimillion dollar corporations, let us buy cake!
