Exciting news never stops coming over here in Rockaway, and this week is no exception.
First off, at long last, we got R&R t-shirts! We’ve been waiting for a long, long time, and we think they’re pretty high fashion.
YOU can get your hands on one of these in two ways. One, you can come by and volunteer and buy one on your way out. Alternately, if you’ve already volunteered with us and can’t make it back, we can ship them, too! The shirts are $20 and proceeds go toward R&R’s work in Rockaway. Please stay tuned–we’ll soon have tote bags and other goodies as well!
In other big news, One Kings Lane has partnered with Steven Alan to support R&R’s work through the sales of an exclusive collection of designer beach towels. We think they would come in handy if volunteers want to take a dip after a long day of Sandy Aid…We also think they’re pretty cute.
Last but certainly not least, R&R would like to thank the Occupy Sandy Local Business Registry for helping us fund the rebuilding of a Rockaway home. With their help, R&R is assisting a Rockaway retiree in moving out of a hotel and back into her home. We couldn’t do it without you!
