Culture on the Cheap
From The New York Shitty Inbox: Another Word From D.I. Hurson
Filed under: 11222, Greenpoint, Greenpoint Brooklyn, Greenpoint Magic
As some of you might recall, the 94th Precinct has an officer who resides in the Rockaways. Wishing to help their neighbors in need, our Finest are taking collections at their HQ at 100 Meserole Avenue. Here is what they need the most:
As of now, toys are not being collected. What is need are diapers, cleaning items and garbage bags.
As you will note Mr. Hurson states toys are presently NOT being collected. This was not a random bit of information on his part. Rather, it was in reply to an inquiry from yours truly. One which I am going to publish here. Very simply put, the proprietress of the Williamsburg Greenpoint News + Arts and myself are endeavoring to implement a toy drive. Our thinking is come next month there will be a LOT of children in our fair city who could really use some holiday cheer.
This project is very much in the works. Nonetheless, I am asking the following of you, gentle readers/fellow bloggers:
- We need goodies.
- We need businesses to serve as drop-off points for said goodies.
- We need help getting these goodies collected and dispatched. And most importantly of all:
- We need to know where to deliver said goodies!
Regarding the lattermost item: Obviously the Rockaways will be one— but surely there are other communities which have been overlooked? Anyone interested in helping with any of the above-listed points please shoot me an email at missheather (at) thatgreenpointblog (dot) com. Please indicate “Toy Drive” in your subject line. Thanks!
