While its not in the neighborhood, I know many neighbors who enjoy the close by Little Mexico restaurant.
From the FaceBook event page:
Hi guys, its Nivi, as you all know there’s been alot of things going on right now. Rosio & I wanted to do our part & throw a little fundraiser to raise/collect donations (whether money or necesities) for Mexico & Puerto Rico.
TUESDAY, OCT 10 from 3PM to 7PM, Little Mexico will take a percentage of the proceeds made during this time and date will be donated to United for Puerto Rico & Omaze to help the victims of the hurricanes in Puerto Rico and earthquakes in Mexico, as well as accept items (LIST BELOW) that are gonna be sent to PR. Unfortunately I havent found anyone whose going to be shipping to MX to send items, so if anyone knows PLEASE LET ME KNOW!
This is something that is very personal to me, as I’ve had very little communication with family but I’ve been made aware of family members who have lost their homes completely and/or belongings. Hope to see ya’ll there! Anything is appreciated!
If for any reason you can’t make it to the event and/or would like to make an additional donation, you can donate online to the websites or donate to a little fundraiser I’ll have open on FB until OCT 11TH! These orgs aren’t an option so I put it under my name and I’ll personally donate the funds to them!
