As Puerto Rico recovers from the devastating effects of Hurricane Maria, the Battery Park City Authority has established the following locations at which neighbors may drop off goods for donation to the State’s larger relief and recovery efforts. Each location can accept donations seven days a week at the following times:

For daytime drop-offs:

Rockefeller Park House
Rockefeller Park
New York, NY 10281

For nighttime drop-offs:

Community Center at Stuyvesant High School
345 Chambers St
New York, NY 10282

Please note the types of donations being sought at this time – batteries, flashlights, portable lanterns, diapers, baby wipes, cases of water and feminine hygiene products – all required to be unopened and in original packaging.

A full list of charitable organizations for financial contributions is available on ny.gov/PuertoRico.

Thank you, Battery Park City, for your kindness and participation in these efforts.
