I’m reaching out to you because we have started a GoFundMe to save the Bed-Stuy farm and Urban Harvest food pantry. For past 17 years, Brooklyn Rescue Mission has served millions of meals to seniors and hungry families with children.
You have helped us on this hunger relief journey and I would like to ask your support for the Brooklyn Rescue Mission annual fundraiser. If you can help me by sending our friendly request for help thru the GoFundMe platform to a few of your friends, it would be great. Our goal is to obtain 100 donors by January 31, 2018. Please consider helping us reach our goal. Here is a convenient link to our campaign.
