ATTENTION NYC FOLKS: In case you haven’t noticed, it’s very cold outside. The city has issued a Code Blue Weather Emergency, which means no one who is homeless and seeking shelter will be denied. Should you see an individual who appears to be homeless and in need out in the cold, please call 311, give a description of the person and the location, and an outreach team will be dispatched to assist. You don’t have to do anything else but call. You don’t need to approach the person, or wait for anyone to arrive. Just #Call311
Whether you are in NYC now or not, please copy/paste/share! It doesn’t take much effort on your part and could immensely help those in need.
