Contribute to an official fund for the families left homeless – and worse – by last week’s devastating gas explosion in East Harlem. The Mayor’s Fund to Advance NYC is accepting donations to house, feed and clothe those left homeless, and help pay for the funerals of the eight people who died in the blast.
The Mayor’s Fund to Advance NYC is the same fund that helped victims of Superstorm Sandy. Donate here and know that every penny of your contributions will go to the victims, not to outsiders paid as fund-raisers, and most certainly not to the scammers who come out of the woodwork whenever there’s a tragedy and take advantage of all of us with good hearts and open wallets who want to help.
