Bay Ridge Cares
Diana Murolo was not a stranger to Bay Ridge Cares. Over the past 3 years, we have aided Diana with some simple things so that she could get by month to month. Each Thanksgiving, Diana waited anxiously for her Bay Ridge Cares turkey dinner to arrive at her doorstep and in recent years, she was able to come down from her room at Shore Hill Senior Housing and sit in the dining room while we served her dinner. In return, many of the board members of Bay Ridge Cares received an heartfelt thank you from Diana and she gifted us with a sweet piece of handmade jewelry that she crafted; a butterfly pin, a beaded bracelet and earrings. But her smile was a gift we received each time we saw her.
Sweet Diana passed away in June. Her daughter Stephanie, who lives in Arizona, has severe health issues, and struggles financially, has been trying desperately to pack up Diana's belongings so that the apartment at 9100 can go to another senior in need. She has been unable to complete the packing and Bay Ridge Cares requested an extension so that Stephanie can have more time.
Shore Hill had already given her an extension of three weeks and has generously agreed to give her until the 15th of the month of July with no additional rent requested, but this extension can only be met if Stephanie gets some help packing. Please sign up if you have some free time next week. We kindly request that all volunteers be at least 16 years old. Dates are Monday July 8th through Friday July 12th. You may use the Shore Hill parking lot if you volunteer.
Shore Hill 9000 Shore Rd. Apt 7B
