Exactly Where and When to Be Useful in New York City Today

Blue = volunteer locations, green = dropoff locations.

Here's a pretty good summary of volunteer locations for today in and around New York City. From there and other sources, here's where to go.

GOWANUS
Volunteers and donations are needed for the Gowanus Houses. Info and schedule here; volunteer sign-up form here.

RED HOOK
Report to 402 Van Brunt starting at 10 a.m.

STATEN ISLAND
Report to Christian Pentecostal Church, 900 Richmond Rd, corner of Ralph Pl, starting at 9 a.m.

ROCKAWAYS
Cars and drivers needed and, it is stressed, people to do labor. Donations report to 443 Beach 54th starting at 8:30 a.m.

EVERYWHERE
Report to St. Jacobi Church in Sunset Park, 5406 4th Ave. They will shuttle volunteers to needed locations from there, departing promptly at 10 a.m

PLANNING FOR TOMORROW
Down in Coney Island, meeting at Generation Gap at 2904 Neptune Avenue, they are going to need people to help seniors get to the polls.

OUT OF TOWN?
Send a gift, why don't ya.

Park Slope Armory at 15th and 8th (south entrance), Brooklyn, needs volunteers to help with hundreds of nursing home and assisted living evacuees from Rockaway. Overnight and early mornings (5 a.m.) most needed.

Doh. Just saw your map came from Interoccupy after I commented. Anyway, they've been awesome in getting people to the Rockaways to help.

Too soon for "too servicey?"

Eep, I think I just spent more on expedited shipping than the entire package of goods was worth.

The number for Nazareth listed above is incorrect. It lists "(212) 471-7017" but the actual number is "(212) 477-7017"

This map is terrific and helpful! The only thing is that when you click on a location, reading the resulting popup is difficult because its off the screen due to the map being small and embedded on the page. Any chance of publishing the link to the full-screen, non-embedded version of the map? Thanks!
