The JP Spata Southampton Town Democratic Club is doing its part to help the many families in need during this pandemic. If you wish to join our effort, these are some things you can do both East and West of the Canal:
• The JP Spata Southampton Town Democratic Club is supporting one family in Riverhead by providing food and supplies. The Eastern Long Island NAACP suggested several families in need. Our family is headed by a single mother who has been laid off from her job. Life is a challenge with her two-month-old infant and five-year-old child in confinement, and she is grateful for our outreach to her. Contact Joy Flynn for details.
• Temple Adas Israel in Sag Harbor is “adopting” families with the help of Minerva Perez, Executive Director of OLA (Organización Latino-Americana) to provide food and supplies to Latino families in the Southampton area. They are currently supporting three families but could do even more with your help. Contact Andi Klausner, Democratic Club Advisory Board member & Committee Second Vice Chair for details.
• The Bridgehampton Child Care & Recreational Center is reaching out for help to the entire Southampton community to help local families. Contact Executive Director Bonnie Michelle Cannon for details.
• Neighbors in Support of Immigrants (NISI) is accepting financial donations at NISI, PO Box 803, Hampton Bays, NY 11946 in addition to distributing food. For details contact Sister Mary Beth Moore, St. Rosalie’s Church in Hampton Bays.
• Butterfly Effect Project––The Butterflies have teamed up with the First Baptist Church of Riverhead and Montauk Iced Tea to deliver food and essentials to their community’s most vulnerable.
For details contact Founder Tijuana Fulford
If you wish to donate to any of these organizations, you can go to www.shdemclub.com to select which organization(s) you would like to support. If you don’t specify, your donation will go to the family the JP Spata Southampton Town Democratic Club is supporting, not to any of our political events or candidates.
Have fun with this unique opportunity to be at home for reflection and introspection. Be careful but not afraid.
Thinking of you all,
