Volunteers Urgently Needed Beginning Monday, November 5, for Emergency Pet Food Distribution in NYC
We have an urgent need for volunteers to help with a crucial distribution of pet food to victims of Hurricane Sandy in New York City.
The Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals, working with our partners on the Animal Planning Task Force of the NYC Office of Emergency Management, will begin distributing emergency pet food and cat litter on
Monday, November 5, to NYC pet owners and animal rescue organizations impacted by the hurricane.
Although final details about the distribution sites and times are still being developed, we anticipate the distribution sites will be at locations in areas of greatest need: Staten Island, Coney Island, the Rockaways, and Manhattan's Lower East Side.
While not yet confirmed, we hope to begin the distribution on Monday, November 5.
If you are available for this effort and have access to any of the target locations, please let us know by sending an e-mail to hurricane@AnimalAllianceNYC.org.
In your e-mail, please provide the following necessary information:
1) Your name
2) Your e-mail address
3) Your phone number(s)
4) Your days and hours of availability
5) The location(s) from the list above at which you can be available
6) If you have a vehicle (and access to fuel) and can transport pet food and litter
We will get back to you with your assignment as soon as the details are confirmed. If you participate, please be sure to wear your Mayor's Alliance t-shirt.
Please to your friends, colleagues, and family members who might want to help.
Thank you, and remember: We're all in this together!
