Helping Out at Sunset Park

New York, NY–I made my way to Sunset Park last Sunday.  It only took 2 hours by subway from Washington Heights.  I helped St. Gertrude’s get set up as a resource center.  Worked with an incredible group of people who turned the auditorium from a mud-filled flood zone into an incredible resource for the community offering food, clothing, cleaning supplies, etc.  Thanks to Cathleen for driving us to and from St. Jacobis.  Had been watching the news all week from my dry spot in Washington Heights.  Had to do something.  Many thanks to Occupy Sandy group for their awesome organizing.  Will be back to help on Monday Nov 12th, Veterans Day in honor of my dad Mike, a WWII vet who passed away almost one year ago.  He never turned down a request to help a friend, neighbor or family member.
