A few weeks ago the bells of St. Anthony’s stopped ringing. Turns out they’re broken beyond repair and the estimate to fix them is at least $10k. The church’s annual raffle is going to be dedicated solely to raising funds for the repairs, but in order to help reach further into the community and to Greenpointers far and wide, a ChipIn site has been set up.
So many churches and catholic schools in the area have gone under over the years, St. Anthony’s bells chiming on the hour shouldn’t go, too. Dig in to your pocket and chip in a few bucks towards the repairs and towards bringing a little old school Greenpoint back.
Spread the word!
