Homeless Shelter Part Deux

In case you haven’t heard, another group has their eye on the 400 McGuinness Blvd location to be used as a homeless shelter. Not even two months after HELP USA’s plans were withdrawn, BRC is planning pretty much the same setup – a 200 bed shelter.

Here we go again…

Back in the New York Groove

I am officially back from my vacation!

It was a great time visiting my Greenpoint ex-pats in North Carolina and Virginia and spending Thanksgiving with my long time friends and their family. I’ve also had enough time with their collective children to last me until next year.

Back at work and pretty busy but I wanted to pass on two worthy fundraisers I received notice from friends going on the ‘hood this holiday season.

First up is the annual Toys for Tots shindig this Saturday. A long standing tradition in the neighborhood that grows every year.

Hey guys,

We are collecting coats for the needy in school. So if you have any that you don’t wear, please drop them off to P.S. 110. I am giving them to the Lions Club. We are actually helping people in our own neighborhood.

Thank you,
Tara
