New Rochelle resident Vin Parise sent a message to his friends on Facebook and got a big response to help out people in need from Sandy. The following is what he put on Facebook.the event took place this past weekend.
I know it is short notice but I am organizing a bus of volunteers to
head to Breezy Point to help a family & their neighborhood with
Hurricane Sandy cleanup. This community has lost so much and need a
lot of help. They are currently overloaded with donations but do not
have nearly enough manpower.
We will be leaving at 9:30 am Sat. morning from New Rochelle &
returning late afternoon around 4:00 pm.
The cost is $20 per person, which will help pay for the bus & a good
amount of the supplies that he will purchase at Home Depot.
We are taking the first 30 people - so please message Vin Parise or
Amy Torigian Parise via Facebook if you are interested.
Please wear work clothing & high boots because it's muddy & dirty down there.
They will provide food & water for volunteers. We will have a great
time & help out a lot of people!
Bus leaves: 33 President St. New Rochelle, NY 10801 at 9:30 am Saturday.
Another great store was lost in New Rochelle's downtown. The Family Bargin Shop Located at 236 North avenue for over 50 years closed it's doors last week.
The owner Mike told me that there was just not enough business to keep the doors open any longer. There is no more walking traffic on the sidewalks and most people only come in for change for the meters or bus.
This shop was in his family for over 50 years his father was killed in the store many years ago after a robbery there and the suspects were never caught.
It's a sad day for New Rochelle when these small stores start to close there doors.
Mike and his staff will be missed be many people in this City. Good luck my friend.
Mr.Latimer the downtown of New Rochelle looks bad enough but it looks worse that all your illegal signs were put up on the 5 Anderson street building.
Someone from your campaign put signs on all the empty storefront windows on Anderson Street and North Avenue.
So please remove them.
