Help needed at Brooklyn Technical HS (29 Fort Greene Place, Brooklyn)

An update from Mesiah in nearby Downtown Brooklyn:

‎"I just spoke to Brooklyn Tech High School evacuation center who have confirmed that 500+ seniors and people with disabilities are on their way in, so there is an urgent need for volunteers. Overnight is really important, particularly 11pm-8am.

Duties might include administrative assistance checking people into the shelter, company for people and perhaps providing assistance for people with their physical comfort.

There is no number to call as they don't have the manpower to answer the phone. Do just pop in, its the South Elliott/DeKalb entrance.

They are good for towels and clothes now, no more required at this time, thank you! A previous request went out for playing cards, crosswords and pens, jigsaws and other entertainment suitable for seniors."


  • Will City Employees be staffing there during the day?

  • I emailed redhook recovers about this posting, and they said volunteers would still be needed in the morning and throughout the day, especially at lunch and dinner times.

  • Highly recommend just showing up. Don't wait for permission! Way too much volume to coord volunteers. I say just go and help and see what you can do. I am sure they will need you.

  • True, they are accepting people as they come in, seem to need extra help around meals, and were looking for people who could come in early tomorrow. I think they will need more help Thurs/Friday; there are a lot of people staying there who need assistance and support. Just go, and they will put you where they need you!
