Relief for our First Responders in Breezy Point, NY
Hello Friends, Family, Neighbors and fellow First Responders,
KOLComm has been contacted to provide support and supplies to families of First Responders in Breezy Point, NY. My friend David Kryger, who is a Fire Chief in Haverstraw will be going down to Breezy Point this Sunday. He has a direct connection to this community and is reporting that children are walking around in inappropriate clothing like flip flops, shorts and t-shirts because they have no clothes. Many of them are sick with sniffles or colds. The stores in the area have been depleted of supplies and few have the necessary transportation to go further out to obtain what they need.
Our friend David, will be delivering supplies to the 100th precinct this Sunday. The precinct has been condemned for business purposes, but is serving as a relief station to the families of First Responders. These families are still servicing the community and many of them are too proud to accept items from the outside for themselves when their community is still struggling. However, if coming from a fellow First Responder, like our friend David Kryger, they will accept it.
We are collecting items and will deliver them to David tomorrow. I understand that this is short notice, but we thought to put the request out there and give it a try. Some of the items that we are accepting include:
- ClothesSchool supplies
- Toys – these have be items that do not require assembly or batteries
- Non-perishable food
- Paper plates and cups
- Paper towels
If anyone is interested in donating, please do so. We will take the items up all at once this Friday afternoon. Items can be dropped off at our office by 12pm tomorrow. We are located at 515 Valley Street, Suite 200 in Maplewood, NJ.
Please spread the word. I know many of us may have limited resources right now, so please do not feel obligated. Only give what you can.
