The Gothamist’s John Del Signore reported earlier today that around 120 volunteers, one of which included Phish frontman Trey Anastasio, handed out blankets, food, and clothing to hurricane victims yesterday near a flooded Church in Red Hook, Brooklyn. Here’s his report:
“Anastasio and his wife pulled up to the church yesterday afternoon with bags of diapers,
Fluffhead and batteries, and handed them out along the line of people waiting for supplies.
The guitarist told us that a friend of his lives in Red Hook, and “his house is under water. I’ve spent the day helping him, pulling out dry wall. It’s really bad here. Really bad.” 120 volunteers had showed up to help at the church, which had begun directing would-be volunteers elsewhere.”
