Saturday the fiance and I took some donation goods over to the Red Hook Initiative (which is an organization that works with youths in the neighborhood to keep them off the streets) for victims of Sandy in this area. It was heart warming to see how many people were there to volunteer their time or donate goods. It took a lot in me not to tear up, to see people online to get hot food, to stock up on goods...it was just the reality that was hard to take in.
I really love Brooklyn. It's just has the community feel and it makes me proud to be apart of it. A lot of restaurants and businesses in the Carroll Gardens and Cobble Hill area have been doing small drives for Sandy victims. Even residents in these hoods have taken to the streets to hold drives. One of our favorite bar/restaurant, Brooklyn Buschenschank, wins with their fundraising efforts for the Red Hook Initiative, bring in one can -- get a free beer! Then Sunday morning as we were doing our usual grocery shopping our favorite desert place, Farmacy, had an outdoors band planning for donations for the Rockaways!
I hope everyone had a great weekend!
