To All,



Long Term



I spoke to the Robin Hood Foundation and after the relief effort we are going to sit down to possibly fund the creation of a permanent Crisis Relief Warehouse through Where to Turn.



This warehouse will collect and stock disaster recovery needs throughout the year and will be staffed with volunteers.



This will enable us to have a facility in place prior to any future disasters but will also assure that we have a place to centrally send donations in the event of another disaster.



It will also enable us to support families in need after fires etc.



I will work with Dominick DeRubbio to plan this effort.



Short Term



Since we did not need Robin Hood’s money for the temporary warehouse they asked if we had any other needs



We are looking into the possibility of renting storage units for victims of Sandy.



This will allow victims to store their possessions while they are rebuilding.



We would also provide trucks to transport the possessions



Please pass this along to see if anyone would be interested.



I need to know numbers so that I could negotiate a deal and make Robin Hood aware of the total cost to see what they are willing to fund..



Please spread the word and have people contact me at dennis.mckeon@where-to-turn.org or 718-966-6531.



Dennis
