QUILTS & BLANKETS: ASAP

Super Storm Sandy and my area of the world.
Having missed the entire storm, by being in Houston for Market, I felt helpless as my family were in NYC without me. I started to organize a quilt drive for our area while I was still in Houston.

Once home, I realized how seriously the storm affected my neighborhood, my friends, and fellow New Yorkers, CT, PA and NJ… Homes have been wiped off the face of the earth, people are cold, and wet, and we have rain and snow coming. I need to be able to help NOW.
I just had a call from Raul Russi, Head of the Acacia Network, whom I had previously partnered with on my BUMBLEBEANSBASICS.com  Quilt Drive for homeless families being taken out of shelters and put into transitional housing. 
He said, “We have 150-200 quilts here, right now. And since the rest of my families are INSIDE already, can we deliver these quilts in our medical trucks to the people in the Rockaways, NOW?”  I said, “YES! Let’s go!”

Once we have more quilts, we will continue to set up more distribution points around our area. Staten Island, Long Island, NJ, CT.
Thank You For your support
