Need a hand? Want to lend a hand? Participate in our new Mutual Aid program by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
We've heard from so many neighbors interested in helping out fellow neighbors in our area. We are inspired by everyone's generosity and concern for their fellow citizens, and have launched a new Mutual Aid program to make these connections easier.
If you are looking to volunteer, please email email@example.com to be added to our list. We currently have two main programs: 1. Riverward Produce Box Deliveries - Every Wednesday Riverwards Produce donates 15 boxes of fresh fruits and vegetables to neighbors and need. The FNA coordinates the delivery of these boxes. If you are able to help with delivery, please let us know. We are always in need of more help! 2. Hot Meals Program - We have worked with local restaurants, Over Easy Breakfast Club and Sulimay's Diner, to provide hot meals to people in our community. We hope to run this service again soon, so please let us know if you are interested is assisting in the future.
Ask for help for yourself, or on behalf of a vulnerable neighbor: 1. Call 267-457-4650 2. Email firstname.lastname@example.org
In April of 2020 we received a generous grant from PTSSD and were able to distribute over $25,000 in grocery gift cards to neighbors in need. This program is complete at this time and we no longer have gift cards available.
This is new terrain for us as an organization, so if you have experience with this type of work that you'd like to share, or have other ideas for how FNA can be a resource at this time, please reach out at email@example.com.
These are difficult times, but Fishtown is a resilient neighborhood filled with neighbors who look out for each other. FNA hopes that this program will make looking out for each other easier. We extend our best wishes all our neighbors, and will update you soon with new developments.
Check back soon, as we will be updating this page with further information and resources that Fishtown neighbors need to know about from the City, state, and other organizations in our area. In the meantime, please spread the word about our program by sharing this website.
