SHEEPSHEAD BITES is hosting another “business recovery workshop”, where business owners can come to get one-on-one help filling out forms and determining next steps in the recovery process.
Jim Hoffer from WABC-TV Channel 7 will be in Gerritsen Beach at the park where GB Cares is set up, Gerritsen Ave and Devon Ave tomorrow morning at 10 am. (Tuesday 11/27) He will be filming a national story on the need for immediate temporary housing for GB residents in Motor Homes and/or Trailers. Everyone in need of such assistance needs to personally be at this location at 10AM. Bring your children, your family members, your neighbors and your stories. This will be a wonderful opportunity to get our needs out to a national audience. Please come and tell everyone that you know to do so. If you can’t be here due to work then please try to find someone to represent your presence and need!
A HUGE THANK YOU to the Gerritsen Beach Fire Department, Mayors Office, OEM, and State Senator Marty Golden and Staff! Marty and his staff were on on Gerritsen Avenue before, during and after the storm and they have not left since Day 1. There are too many little things to mention from, coordinating rescues (before, during and after) unloading trucks, coordinating OEM, FEMA, National Guard gas, I do not think we could of gotten out of this mess without you!
