Breezy Point is devasted to an extent unseen elsewhere. Please spread the word about the breezy point disaster relief fund - breezypointdisasterrelief.org. --- all families are dislocated, there is no electric, gas or water, ALL 3000 homes have been ravaged by flood, many totally destroyed by the surge, 116 burned by the fire- it is a year round community and residents have lost there only homes and most if not all of their contents. Please help breezy people rebuild their homes and lives. Those with flood insurance face caps and gaps, those without are destitute. No donation is too small and all are welcome.
How do we find Beth on Breezy Point or others who need help? I'll bring a carload . . .
Isn't there a way to connect organizations doing hurricane relief with theater and resturant goers?If every Broadway and off Broadway show (and why not movie theaters too)asked patrons to contribute one dollar it would add up quickly.Resturants raised money for the tsunami in Japan, how about for the people in Coney Island!
