7 pallets, 285 cartons (570 sleeping bags total) arrived today.
We are loaded to the ceilings here, but more importantly we'll be able to provide some measure of warmth to many of our city's homeless this coming fall & winter.
A special THANK YOU to TSBPNYC founding member Ed Casey and his family who did what had to have been a back breaking job of receiving, unpacking and storing these bags in their home!!! Strong work!!
We were very lucky to have been able to purchase over 500 sleeping bags this year that we will store in anticipation of our fundraising and distribution this season during what sadly, I know, will be a particularly cold winter for some of NY's most vulnerable.
A sincere thank you to those who have helped us in the past as well as to those whose support we might be blessed to have in the future.
Please keep us in mind as note pledges for our 2nd annual Walk-for-Warmth walkathon (October 11th 2015) as well as for donations in support of our Wine and Cheese fundraiser scheduled for next Friday August 28th, 2015, which is being expertly coordinated by TSBPNYC member Tariq Kyle George.
Last but certainly not least we would like to once again thank Exxel Outdoors
for all of your support over the past two years.
