Hey Everyone,
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.

New Rochelle Losing Another Great Business

November 12, 2012 - 01:56

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.IMG 4215
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.IMG 4217
Mike and his staff will be missed be many people in this City. Good luck my friend.
