Update on January 10, 2013

Hello Again! Because 2,000 of you took the time to sign this petition and show your support for the Cedar Grove Community Hub, it appears now that this incredible relief center is no longer under the threat of a shutdown by Mayor Bloomberg. I can't thank you enough for standing up for the people of Staten Island who needed your help. I'm writing to you today to let you know about another way you can show your support for those hit-hard by Sandy – it's an event called "Walk a Mile in Our Shoes". This Saturday, January 12th, across Sandy-affected areas of New York and New Jersey, thousands of people will walk side-by-side with Sandy survivors to show their support and demand that Congress pass the Sandy Relief Bill on January 15th. By "walking a mile" with Sandy survivors through these devastated neighborhoods, you will not only be giving these people much-needed support; you will be helping to bring much-needed media attention to these communities. For those interested in taking part in the event in Staten Island, the walk will take place in the New Dorp Beach neighborhood – right past the Cedar Grove Community Hub. Organizers ask that you come to the corner of Ebbitts Street and Cedar Grove Ave. at 8:30 AM and the walk will begin at 9AM. For more information about the Staten Island "Walk a Mile in Our Shoes" event and the others taking place simultaneously in New York (The Rockaways, Gerritsen Beach, Coney Island, Island Park) and New Jersey (Seaside, Keansburg/Union Beach, and Brigantine) visit: Thanks again for your support! All the Best, Dan
