November Calendar and Hurricane Relief
The Fifth Avenue Merchant Calendar for November has been updated. This is a difficult time for everyone, so please make sure to take some time out to support your local stores, bars and restaurants. [CALENDAR LINK].
On the hurricane relief front, the Park Slope Chamber of commerce is collecting items to help those affected by the storm. They are especially interested in gathering items to help keep people warm and dry, as we are expecting a strong Nor'easter storm to come through on Wednesday. Details on their drive are available at shopseventh.com.
Also, as we mentioned on Friday, the Old Stone House is working with Park Slope Parents to collect funds to purchase bulk supplies of underwear, socks, towels, water, ice etc. for Brooklyn shelters and evacuees. Make a donation to the effort at brownpapertickets.com/event/293089.
Finally, the blog Here's Park Slope posted a pretty comprehensive list of ways to help. Check out the list here.
