Today: Shelter At FDR Is Set To Relocate Evacuees Due To School Starting

A shelter volunteer has given the following update regarding the FDR shelter location (20th Avenue and 58th Street): Evacuees will be relocated throughout today to different locations because school is due to start on Wednesday.

Volunteers are needed to help in the relocating process. This includes, but is not limited to, assisting city workers with Russian translations in filling out FEMA forms for the elderly and helping ease the transition of those moving from the shelter.

Also, clothing is discouraged as it takes up too much manpower to sort through. However, large and extra large sizes will still be accepted. Heavy coats and jackets are needed too. As well as new undergarments, socks, and baby clothes and supplies.
