Gratitude from Broad Channel and Breezy Point NY

Well the blankets and beanies all made it safe and sound to New York and are starting to bring some warmth goodness to everyone in the most devastated areas effected by Sandy.  The following is an email I received today from our friend and organizer in Broad Channel, NY.  He has welcomed our blankets and beanies and is overseeing the distribution.  

(It's a bit blurry - but this is at the community center in Broad Channel)

Hi Liz
Just a quick update ,
2 pallets of the blankets went to the Roxbury volunteer fire department in Breezy Point for distribution where 83 homes were burnt to the ground the night of the storm.
The remainder are being distributed throughout Broad Channel. The people are truly grateful and appreciate the talent , time and effort that was put into making each blanket and hat.  along with the monumental task of packaging and shipping the boxes. I myself want to thank you and want you to know you have 1254 new Friends in Broad Channel


So thanks to all of you - you ALL now have 1254 new friends in New York.  If any of you are ever out that direction, please be sure to stop and say hi and let them know that you were part of this fun project!! I'm sure they would love to meet you!!
