Thank you to Andrew Bancroft aka Jelly Donut and Ashley Perez Flanagan aka Reina Fire of Freestyle Love Supreme for holding their private concert.
As mentioned during the concert, individuals who would like to support organizations that are on the frontlines of this pandemic helping NYC's most vulnerable can donate to BRC.
Since 1971, BRC has been on frontlines of poverty and public health in NYC, beginning in the flop houses on skid row, continuing through the AIDS epidemic, 9/11, Hurricane Sandy, economic downturns and now COVID-19.
Given the personal and environmental challenges faced by our clients, they are among the most susceptible to the impacts of this pandemic, making the continuity of our operations ever more critical. In these challenging and uncertain times, our essential staff remain present, resilient and determined, going above and beyond to do all they can to support our clients.
The BRC community, from the outreach workers in the subways; the social workers, aides, cooks and porters in our shelters; the case managers in our housing; to the doctors, nurses and counselors in our addiction treatment programs – continue to work tirelessly to ensure that the critical services we provide are available to New York City’s most vulnerable individuals.
Now more than ever, BRC needs support to ensure the sustainability of our life saving efforts throughout this crisis, and so that we can be ready to serve effectively when the resultant economic crisis brings more people in need to our door.
