On Wednesday 9/23 we will pause all intake and processing of new requests for aid. The Rochester Mutual Aid Network will be using the the next 2 weeks to make important organizational changes and to recruit and train more volunteers to help us better serve our community. We will begin fulfilling requests for aid again on Thursday 10/8.
As of this week, the Rochester Mutual Aid Network has fulfilled over 850 requests for aid including food, household expenses and day-to-day needs. We extend great love and solidarity to all of our neighbors and everyone involved in this strong community Network which has made this possible. Love and solidarity to our neighbors in the street, fighting for justice for Daniel Prude. Love and solidarity to our neighbors fighting for housing justice. Love and solidarity to our neighbors fighting for the right to free healthcare. Love and solidarity to our neighbors fighting to survive, day in and day out. We support each other. We work for each other. We build this community together. And we won't stop.
If you'd like to volunteer with the Rochester Mutual Aid Network, please sign up here.
NOTE: Requests for aid received before 9/23 will be fulfilled as usual. All existing Flower City Pickers deliveries on Saturdays will continue through this period.
