Volunteers Welcome at Local Evacuation Center

October 29, 2012

I visited our local evacuation center in the John Jay High School Complex yesterday and inquired as to whether they needed volunteers and the answer was a resounding yes. “Especially help with the pets,” Betty, a DOE representative told me.

The Evacuation Centers welcome pets. Yesterday they needed  help setting up the pet area at John Jay.

If you are interested in helping with pets or humans, go to John Jay on Seventh Avenue between 4th and 5th Streets in Park Slope (if it’s safe outside). Tell the guard at the door that you are interested in volunteering and they will direct you to the DOE representative in charge. There is a half-hour training session, so it’s best if you can donate at least two hours or more beyond the training.
