Locals Organizing “Thanksgiving for Sandy Survivors”

Posted on: November 14th, 2012 at 6:28 am by

With the region still reeling in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, Thanksgiving assumes an even greater importance. Here at home, many in the neighborhood are still without proper utilities, and might not have the ability to celebrate the holiday.

But a group of locals aim to change that with a FREE feast for those most affected by the storm. Catering company Jessica Alfreds Homemade and others are behind the effort, which is planned for November 22 at St. Mark’s in the Bowery.

Organizers are currently crowdsourcing cash and food donations to help make the vision a reality.

DATE: THANKSGIVING DAY- THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 22
TIME: 1 PM TIL 4 PM (OR UNTIL WE RUN OUT OF FOOD)
LOCATION: ST. MARK’S CHURCH IN THE BOWERY (10TH STREET BETWEEN 2ND AND 3RD)
