Like you, our hearts go out to the families living in areas damaged by Hurricane Sandy and the many parents who are unable to provide for their children. I have actually spent some time in the Rockaways and have written about my experiences. I’ve seen the looks of fear and of the unknown on the children’s faces as their parents are enduring a struggle no one should have to face.
To help them out and hopefully bring some joy into their lives this holiday season, we’re launching our own MamaDrama Hurricane Sandy Holiday Toy Drive and we need your help!
We are working directly with St. Camillus Chuch in the Rockaways on a very special holiday party for and with the children scheduled for December 23rd at 2pm.
HERE’S HOW YOU CAN GET INVOLVED:
- Send a gift for a child any age infant to teenage years, wrapped or unwrapped, to Holly Rosen Fink. Email me for shipping information. (note: If it is wrapped, please label gender/age on the outside.)
- No time to shop? If you don’t have time, you can order it on Amazon and have it shipped by the proposed date. All gifts need to be taken to the church by 12/15. Email me for shipping information.
- If you are in Manhattan, you can take your gift to Erin Leigh Peck. Email her to coordinate!
- Be a party volunteer! Attend a party in the Rockaways with the children whose lives have been hit so hard by Hurricane Sandy on December 23rd at 2pm. Help bring food and decorations, give your time and bring your kids! Email me to coordinate! The address of the church is 99-15 Rockaway Beach Boulevard.
