Sorry, this fundraiser is closed and no longer accepting contributions.
A massive explosion in East Harlem has leveled two buildings, killing and injuring people. DepositaGift.com is a startup crowdfunding website located just 3 blocks from the scene on 116th and Park. We built our site as a platform for people to give back and hope to put it to good use during this time of crisis for our community. We hope this serves as a hub for people to offer support and prayers to those affected as the crisis unfolds. We will be donating ourselves and hope you will to. We are working with our district's council speaker, Melissa Mark-Viverito to direct the funds to the greatest area of need. Funding will be utilized to create a victims assistance fund for expenses related to housing, funerals and replacing lost possessions, long-term case management and counseling services, and specialized outreach to El Barrio's immigrant communities.
It's a sad and and scary time for the Harlem community and we hope this
gives people a place to show their support. If you have thoughts,
questions or ideas for how we can help, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
