Another Round of "Thank You's" to Another Amazing Crew of Volunteers
Thank you to everyone who came out this weekend to help clean-up BIG!NYC Gowanus. We've had two incredible days of clean-up and the reuse center is starting to look like itself again! Visit our Facebook page to view photos of the volunteers in action, and the progress to getting our reuse center back to working condition: facebook.com/bignyc
We've been touched by how many neighbors, customers, friends, New Yorkers (and New York Care-ers!) have come out to help us get back on our feet. We wouldn't be this far along without all of you! You've inspired us to work harder and get back to our mission of salvaging building materials so that we can continue to help other folks who need the materials. And it's also reminded us about the devastating effects of climate change, which is another reason why BIG!NYC is here - we're trying to reduce the amount of waste filling up the landfills, causing pollution and GHG emissions.
If you'd like to get involved, we could use more volunteers this Thursday and Saturday. Sign up via Eventbrite, or stop by! We don't have power, but we have running water, so our hours have been adjusted to 9am to 4pm each day.
UPDATE - We have power as of Tuesday!!! New times for volunteers - 10am to 5pm.
Thursday, November 8th from 10am to 5pm (COMPLETED - THANK YOU!!!)
Saturday, November 10th from 10am to 5pm (click to RSVP via Eventbrite)
