It’s been just over a week since tragedy hit our neighborhood at 263-265 Flatbush. Our friend and NFBID board member suffered great loss with the death of his brother and the injuries and loss of home of other family members.
The support shown over this time has been tremendous and we appreciate all the inquiries we’ve received about how to help. Currently there is a GoFundMe campaign set up to support the Awad family through this difficult time. Here is the link if you are able to support: http://www.gofundme.com/klgfek.
As we move forward, we will be coordinating efforts to support the Nation family–the owners of Flatbush Hardware. As their livelihood has been destroyed they will continue to need the support of neighbors and our NFBID community.
Please stay tuned for details on supporting this longstanding North Flatbush business. If you are interested in working on this project or have ideas, please reach out to the NFBID office or email firstname.lastname@example.org
