Due to Hurricane Sandy some of our project partners require some short term volunteers. At this moment we know of two locations in need. As we are in contact with more of our project partners will will post more opportunities as they are known.
CAMBA's Park Slope Women's Shelter (PSWS) need volunteers to help in tasks that support their operations as many of their employees are unable to get to this location. PSWS is located in the Armory at 8th Avenue between 14th and 15th Streets in Park Slope, Brooklyn.
In addition we have been informed that a neighboring storm shelter being run at the YMCA at the Park Slope Armory is looking for evening and overnight volunteers.
If you are available to help at either location, please contact Faye Merolla, Director of PSWS (FayeM@camba.org) with "AFHny Volunteer help" in the subject line. Further details will be provided upon receipt of the RSVP.
You may also head directly to the Park Slope Armory and ask Security to speak with with Erin, Shannon, or Orly from NYC (Office of Emergency Management) to find out how you can help.
If you have ideas on how Architecture for Humanity New York can lend a hand to our community during this difficult time please do not hesitate to contact us. firstname.lastname@example.org
