We have just received a plea from Mayor Bloomberg’s office, via Community Board 3’s Susan Stetzer, asking for help staffing the shelter at Seward Park High School at 350 Grand St., the primary emergency housing for lower Manhattan flood zone evacuees.
Here’s the note from Leland Dyer of the Community Affairs office:
The Mayor’s Office is looking for volunteers to staff the evacuation/hurricane centers at Seward Park HS and Baruch College. We are asking for any willing volunteers that live in these areas to please help out if they can. Any hours today would be greatly appreciated. Overnight staffers are particularly important. Please have anyone interested in helping us during this difficult time to contact me at 347-844-3309 or via email at LDYER@CITYHALL.NYC.GOV
