Brooklyn Community Services, Astella, Launch Brooklyn Builders

Hurricane Sandy may no longer be front page news in New York City, but it is far from over for people living in hard-hit neighborhoods in Southern Brooklyn and Staten Island, still struggling to put their lives back together.

To address their needs, Brooklyn Community Services (BCS) has partnered with Astella Development Corporation to create a Coney Island hub providing neighborhood relief and recovery assistance.

Funded through foundation, corporate and individual donations, BCS has so far distributed over $80,000 in relief funds to Coney Island residents, but the need is far greater.

To raise additional relief funding, BCS has launched BKLYN Builders, a program providing both short and long-term support to Coney Island residents rebuilding their lives after Sandy.

By donating to BKLYN Builders, you can help hard-hit Coney Island families pull their lives together again.

Your gift of $50 or more to the BKLYN Builders campaign by May 1 will automatically enter your name in a raffle to win a pair of tickets to BCS's annual Human Spirit Awards on June 4, and an exclusive invitation to the BKLYN Builders Online Auction launch party on May 21.
