Help a Bed-Stuy Resident Facing Eviction


There is a fundraising campaign up to help Ms. Augusta, a longtime resident of Bed-Stuy, who was evicted from her apartment on Halsey and Thompkins this month and is now facing homelessness. Here are details about the campaign set up for her:

We are frantically pulling all resources to get Ms Augusta a room that she can afford on her own for the time being, a mover/moving truck, and a storage unit for her belongings before anything is discarded by the current property owner. We are looking to raise $1800.00, as Ms Augusta is on a tight and fixed monthly income. Any and all support will be greatly appreciated from her, and her neighbors residing in the Bedford Stuyvesant block of Halsey St between Tompkins and Throop Avenue. Thank you

Over $500 has been raised of the $1,800 goal. The fundraiser will last until Monday, July 31st, and you can donate here.
