This Weekend We’re Raising Money for Puerto Rico Hurricane Victims & The Greenpoint Hunger Program

This Sunday at our Fall Market (10/1) at the Greenpoint Loft from 1-7pm, we will have two non-shopping tables you should definitely swing by. One is for the Hurricane Maria Community Relief & Recovery Fund, and the other is for the Greenpoint Hunger Program. Here’s a little about each of these important causes:

Hurricane Maria Community Relief & Recovery Fund
The devastating effects of hurricane Maria on Puerto Rico are still unfolding, but one thing is certain—the island’s most vulnerable communities are likely to be pummeled the hardest and face the longest road to recovery. Low-income communities of color often face the worst destruction and slowest recovery and have fewer resources to safeguard homes, vehicles, and other property. When the winds die down and the floods recede, these communities are often forgotten by reconstruction efforts, and underserved by insurance companies. The Hurricane Maria Community Relief & Recovery Fund will be housed at the Center for Popular Democracy (CPD). One hundred percent of monies raised will be used to support immediate relief, recovery, and equitable rebuilding in Puerto Rico for the communities hit hardest by the storm. The Fund is governed by organizations like Puerto Rico-based Taller Salud, the G8 of Caño Martín Peña, and other local, grassroots organizations.

The Greenpoint Hunger Program
If you have not heard from your neighbors about the Soup Kitchen + Food Pantry of the Greenpoint Reformed Church’s Hunger Program, the volunteer-based organization is a vital part of Greenpoint, for those in need. The kitchen serves more than 800 hungry people every month in the North Brooklyn Community and beyond. On Wednesday evenings, they serve a delicious community dinner. On Thursdays, they distribute groceries from the food pantry. According to the Church, “It costs about $5,000 per week to host the meal and keep food pantry running,” so they need your monetary and volunteer support. Stop by their table to find out more about donating your time or dollars.
