Message received today (Friday) from JASA, a social service agency that helps elderly people in NYC:
JASA's first priority is the safety and security of our seniors. Along with the rest of New York, we have been significantly affected by Hurricane Sandy and its aftermath. The vast majority of our services are now up and running thanks to the dedication of our incredible staff.
However, our housing has been hard hit due to location and many of our buildings were evacuated. We are actively working with local utilities and authorities to restore power and repair damage as quickly as possible. But, there is much more to be done.
Here's how YOU can help...
To make a donation visit: http://jasa.org/donate/ways-give
To volunteer contact Jacob Stolar at JStolar@... or 212-991-6572.
Volunteers are most needed in Brooklyn:
- Carrying supplies up 7-20 flights of stairs to homebound seniors at 3601 Surf Ave, 3161 Brighton 6th St, and 161 Corbin Place
- Driving social workers to check on clients
Thank you for your compassion, time and interest.
