Monetary donations at the physical location of the Occupy Union Square table (North side of 14th Street). Online monetary donations: https://gogetfunding.com/project/food-info-supplies
People are needed with good art skills to design creative, educational, inspiring & awakening SIGNS, FLYERS, BANNERS etc, and work along frontage of 14th as well as within the internal park area to engage the public and get more volunteers and participants, informing them of what we're up to.
*** Join the PARK OUTREACH team and talk to the NYC public in the neighborhood, hand out flyers, recruit volunteers & mailing list sign ups… goal being to gain COMMUNITY SUPPORT in the form of volunteers, in-kind donations & financial donations! Hand out flyers and tell people about OUR WEEKLY POTLUCK and them if they'd like to support! And tell people about the good events happening around city!
You can also PRINT FLYERS and BRINGING to park OR DISTRIBUTING them yourself in your own neighborhood ( can be downloaded from HERE: http://occupyunionsquare.net/how-to-plug-in/printable-flyers/ ). Spanish & Chinese Translators are needed !
ENCOURAGE YOUR FRIENDS, CO-WORKERS, NEIGHBORS ETC. TO BRING FOOD AND NECESSARY SUPPLIES! This is a PEOPLE'S MOVEMENT! Meaning WE make it happen! WE decide if our park stays open after midnight and WE decide what we're going to do in the park as long as we treat the park, ourselves, and others with respect.
WE DECIDE WHERE NYC's FUTURE IS GOING… NOT BILLIONAIRE MAYORS, CORRUPT POLICE COMMISSIONERS, CITY COUNCIL MEMBERS, AND HIJACKED COMMUNITY BOARDS.
Start you own food outreach project! And/or neighborhood organizing project! Or art activism group. Or teach-in, etc etc.
All Power To The People!
