  • I plan on volunteering today. I'm in Brooklyn and gonna try to pick up a few items to bring with me. Using mass transit and probably walking over the bridge, so I dont know exactly how long it will take for me to get there. The plan is to do the Smith houses first then walk on over to GOLES afterwards. Depending on travel time, I may have to make adjustments. Thanks for providing an opportunity to help. - Charles.
