***Update 11/9/12 - So apparently the stuff that was dropped off by the red cross most likely didn't make it to the elderly tenants (info from the group of volunteers that brought hot food and delivered apartment to apartment). Thye said that by the time they got to the building (1PM) there was nothing left in the lobby.

***Update 11/8/12 - Great news! the lady at the Queens president's office Suzanne (that I'm on the phone with during this video) DID make calls and some supplies were dropped off in the lobby by the red cross today! It's a great start!
now we need them to bring volunteers that will take the stuff upstairs to people's homes ... and do this every day!
