Volunteers Needed Today in Chinatown, Lower East Side
This morning at Confucius Plaza, on the Bowery, volunteers are needed to distribute water. if you can help, report to 33 Bowery, the Chinese Chamber of Commerce office on the second floor, at 10 a.m.
There’s also a need for volunteers at Seward Park High School, 350 Grand Street, throughout the day. Anyone able to offer help should go to the shelter and ask for Jerry Chan, the chair of the CERT team.
If you have supplies to donate (flashlights, batteries, water) you can drop them off at CAAAV’s offices, 46 Hester Street.
And this morning there will be an effort to help elderly residents of the Seward Park Co-op. Volunteers are meeting at 10:30 a.m. at 387 Grand Street (Norfolk). The plan is to go floor-by-floor in the buildings (if Seward Park security will allow it). Email email@example.com for more info. Incidentally, we spoke with the co-op’s general manager, Frank Durant, last night. He said many seniors had already been checked on. Today truck loads of food will be delivered to people in need (we’ll have much more about the situation at Seward Park in a separate post this morning).
“Made in the LES,” a fairly new community organization, is keeping track of various volunteer efforts. You can reach them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
