Great South Bay Society Clean Up
October 2, 2021 @ 8:00 am - 10:00 am
Hey Amityville! Join our Amityville Creek Defender Todd Brice during his Great South Bay Society 15th Annual Bay Cleanup along the Amityville creeks and marshlands.
Saturday October 2nd, 2021 – 8AM
Notes from Todd:
Ana would tell me that if she lived, she wanted to volunteer at the hospital where she was treated. There are so many people that volunteer and helped her there. Ana was truly a selfless person and she wanted to help others with no expectation of return. She did not get that opportunity. We are going to do our best to help all those people that she would have helped.
This year we are going to be changing things. Our goal has always been to remove debris from the bay and bay islands. That goal will not change, but this year we are going to be raising money for a specific purpose. We will be supporting patients at NY Presbyterian and Weill Cornell cancer center.
There are specific things that took a lot of burden and stress from Ana and I while she was getting treatment. Many of these things we were able to take care of on our own, but others may not be as fortunate. Our goal is to raise money to help patients and their families to help them with things like paying for parking, car service, family meals at the hospital and other things.
The Social Workers and volunteers at the hospital will be given annual amounts to spend as they see fit to help patients and families navigate their difficult time in life and treatment.
In the past we would raise money to pay for the event. This year we will be doing several things to raise money for these and other purposes. We will still clean the bay, but we will do it in the memory of such a beautiful person.
