As you know, many people here on Staten Island lost everything in Super Storm Sandy. The outpouring of support has been overwhelming. People have donated so much time, money, gift cards, food, clothes, etc. This has been invaluable to those so terribly affected by the storm.

Many have expressed the desire to donate things such as furniture, appliances, kitchenware and other items to help families get started again with their lives. The problem today is that so many families who lost their homes or whose homes were severely damaged are currently living in shelters, hotels or with family or friends. They have no place to put these greatly needed items.

It is for this reason that we have initiated the Back to Basics project. We have located a warehouse here on Staten Island that has been generously donated to us for use for the next few months. It is our plan to collect as much new or very gently used furniture, kitchenware, appliances, etc. We will store this in our warehouse and as families enter back into more permanent locations, we will be there to provide them with much needed support in this area.

If you have donations but are unable to get them to us, we will be sending out trucks to pick the items up on these four dates as well. You can contact us in the following ways to make your donations:

Call us at:718-816-1422 Ext. 296

e-mail us at: backtobasicsinitiative@gmail.com

We are looking for the following donations:

Living room furniture

Please note that we will NOT be accepting beds or mattresses. In addition, we will not be accepting broken or damaged furniture. ANY USED FURNITURE MUST EMAIL PICTURE 1st . All checks or item Donations can be sent to : Where to Turn (MUST NOTE BACK TO BASICS on Check or any items you send in )150 –L Greaves Lane#312 , Staten Island , NY 10308

Thank you so much for your support.

Kindest Regards,

“Back to Basics”
