Since the storm struck, Bowery Babes has been working with The Action Center in Far Rockaway, where we have found there is still remarkable devastation and many living in horrific circumstances following Hurricane Sandy. We have partnered with Diapers.com who will send desperately needed supplies to The Action Center AT COST (with no profit to their company) on a daily basis. Every dollar you donate through Bowery Babes will go directly to supplies for The Action Center. Please make a note that your donation is for "Sandy Relief" when donating.
The Action Center is one of the largest and most trusted community organizations serving one of New York City's most isolated, distressed, and needy populations of 45,000 people, most of whom live at 200% below the poverty line. Some supplies will be matched directly with a specific family, while others will be distributed to the mothers who are streaming in every day pleading for basic items like diapers, baby wipes, children's medicines, blankets, mattresses, cribs, and more.
This program runs through Monday, November 19th, so please donate quickly to help those in need! To date we have raised over $13,000 but the list of supplies to help families living in poverty and devastation is over $50,000! Please help with any amount you are able to provide. THANK YOU!
The Bowery Babes is 501(c)3, founded in 2005, with a mission of supporting mothers and families.
