From The New York Shitty Inbox, Part II: How You Can Help!

As I mentioned yesterday, among the people rendered homeless as a result of Friday night’s fire at 147 Conselyea Street (as seen at left) is a family who not only lost everything save the shirts on their backs but their son’s birthday is today. That’s rough! Thus, a number of our local businesses are accepting donations to help these, our neighbors in need— and perhaps bring a much-needed smile to this child’s face. Follows are three:

Breaking Boundaries
180 North 10 Street
Brooklyn, New York 11211

They write:

…they are dear friends and family to us. You can drop items money at breakin’ boundaries starting Monday 2pm…

They go on to outline what this family needs:

  • Clothing- woman 35 show size 6 she’s 5″2 and thin
  • Man-6 ft
  • Boy – he turns 12 today (June 3rd — Ed. Note) we’re throwing him a surprise birthday party
  • He’s a shoe size 7
  • Clothing 12-14
  • And sports he plays everything

You can also leave donations at Mousey Brown Salon who writes:

I will have a collection box at Mousey Brown Salon for the families that were burned out of their building on Conselyea night before last. As I find out more about what they need in particular, I will post it. My assumption is that they will need everything. I will take whatever we collect to Tony’s Pizza to give to the families.

Mousey Brown Salon
732 Lorimer Street
Brooklyn, New York 11211

And as the above indicates, Tony’s Pizza is accepting donations as well:

Tony’s Pizza
355 Graham Avenue
Brooklyn, New York 11211

Please find it in your collective hearts, north Brooklynites, to lend this family a hand in their time of need. Thanks!

UPDATE, 6:14 p.m.: On a related note, do take a moment to read this New York Daily news article about an absolutely amazing fellow who helped his neighbors flee 147 Conselyea Street!
