Let's honor our veterans by protecting and serving fellow New Yorkers affected by Sandy.
Bring the kids and learn an easy way to make scarves without knitting or crochet needles.
You'll be fascinated and your children will be proud that they're helping fellow New Yorkers stay warm. This activity is ideal for parents/ guardians with children that are 6 and older, but even 3 year olds can help out.
This Parents As Primary Teachers "I, too, am America" activity is being hosted by the Brooklyn Movement Center at Freebrook Academy, 375 Stuyvesant Avenue between
Decatur and Bainbridge Streets - just a couple of blocks from the Utica Avenue train station near Boys & Girls High School.
Whether or not you can join us today, mark your calendar for November 17th, 10am-3pm when we'll be distributing scarves, hats, gloves, coats, blankets, and prepared food to Coney Island residents.
Urban Neighborhood Services, a non-profit organization in Coney Island, had its furniture and equipment ruined by Sandy and is making the hollowed out office available on weekends for relief distribution.
Individuals and groups interested in contributing to this Saturday's initiative by volunteering or donating the aforementioned items, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or call Parents As Primary Teachers, Inc. at 718-857-8487.
