Still today there are 4 million people without power in New York City alone. Many families had significant damages to their properties. As you know Latinos have the highest number of families living in basements (I used to live in a basement while I was in college) because the rent is cheap. We have heard from so many of them these days. They lost EVERYTHING. Can you imagine?
Now it’s time to come together and help. Offer up your lunch ($20) or even your dinner ($40) and help a family out. The LATISM-NY Chapter will be granting these donations to families that fill out this application. We will also help some of the LATISM Bloggers who got stranded in Houston for 4 extra days and had to incur unexpected expenses.
Join @lafamiliacool and @mzelma tonight, bring a dollar and a friend.
