Chinatown needs our help!
posted about 6 years ago by morgan
At this time we have met or are meeting all needs that have been logged - of course there are countless more to come as people get back on their feet. We simply have to wait for them. However, something you can do NOW is help out Chinatown:
CAAAV is a nonprofit working in the community there, and they have asked for our help. Residents are widely without power and there is an immediate need for non-perishable food, water, flashlights, batteries and generators!
CAAAV is located at 46 Hester St. and they are opening tomorrow at 10am to collect and distribute donations. Residents also have virtually no access to news and information, so they need volunteers to help canvass the neighborhood - translators will be available to help with fliers.
As we wait to gather more needs from LES residents, please consider helping out Chinatown, whether in person or by collecting needed items. Comment below if you can help!
Thank you for your volunteerism and compassion!
