The local councilman’s office tells us that with temperatures falling and power still not restored, the greatest need for donations now is blankets and coats, as well as flashlights and batteries. You can help, either in person or through the mail.
Deliver in Person:
The New York Communities For Change (NYCC) office at 2-4 Nevins Street (between Flatbush & Livingston), 2nd Fl, Brooklyn NY 11217, is collecting donations and transporting them to Far Rockaway twice a day. Stop by between 9 a.m. and 7 p.m.
Have a car? NYCC also needs help to transport donations. Contact Olivia Leirer with NYCC at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Or, fill a car with donations from friends and deliver these items yourself to:
City Council Member James Sanders’ Office

Far Rockaway, NY 11691
You can ship donations
