Cash Donations for Community Groups Now Priority in Recovery Process

On Saturday, volunteers from all over New York City, and the United States gathered in solidarity to canvass the neighborhoods of the Rockaways to assess community needs with local organizers. Community groups involved in the emergency response in the Rockaways are now encouraging individuals, groups and organizations wanting to help to provide cash donations to assist with the long-term recovery process.  Local groups such as the Rockaway Youth Task Force will benefit from continued support in this way, as community-based organizations can build upon their existing assets and knowledge of the community to rebuild the area in a sustainable and culturally appropriate way.
