We’ve always relied on the kindness of neighbors.
Thank you for this week’s donations!
Our staff were delighted to receive continued support from LIC Relief. The grassroots organization, founded by Pastor Patrick Thompson and Kelly Craig, is doing phenomenal work throughout the community. They provided staff with lunches all week.

|LIC Masks is a group of wonderful human beings from our surrounding community in Long Island City. They make masks, collect manufactured masks, and distribute them to those in need, including their neighbors at The Floating Hospital.|
