About


Call/text (929) 243-4408 or email [email protected] for assistance!

Gowanus Mutual Aid is a community of neighbors in Gowanus organizing to support one another through the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond. 

In an effort to fight against systemic racism and the financial burden our community is facing as a result of this pandemic, we need to redistribute wealth to help our most affected neighbors. Please help us provide the necessary assistance of groceries, supplies, etc. to our Gowanus community members by contributing to our fund below.  

Any amount you're able to contribute will be gratefully accepted and put to good use. We appreciate your support and solidarity.

If you'd like to join us as a volunteer, please visit our website www.gowanusmutualaid.org
