So many have been beyond generous.Thank you. We spoke to our friend John this morning. He stated his facility on the west side of Staten Island is serving 500 free hot lunches daily while families rebuild and/or locate temporary housing. He was overwhelmed that our community was so willing to help. He states, blankets, bedding supplies, toiletries, and non perishable food items are desperately needed. We will continue to except items at the Urban Funeral Home 1111 S. Bethlehem Pike, Ambler
