On Wednesday, January 26th, at 5 p.m. until supplies run out, City Council Member Gale Brewer’s team will be giving away FREE at-home COVID testing kits and KN95 masks in front of her District 6 office at 563 Columbus Avenue, between 87th and 88th Streets.
Each mask package contains 5 masks. (Limit one mask package per person.) Each FlowFlex test kit contains one test. (Limit two test kits per person.) For further information, contact the office at 212.873.0282 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
WSR reached out by text to CM Brewer for the details of the giveaway, and to find out how it feels to be back in the district in the face of such distress and so many challenges. One thing she’s doing is preparing the office to provide constituent services.
I love being in the 563 Columbus Ave District Office! We have painted the walls and are cleaning and upgrading the floors, all with professionals from the neighborhood. So many people sent or brought flowers and plants as a welcome back, and friends bang on the window or wave as they walk by! I am very appreciative. West Siders and others have found us, and we try to answer all calls and emails.
The killings of Officer Rivera and Officer Mora have shocked and saddened us all. I was at Harlem Hospital with Mayor Adams and others just after the horrible murders, and I saw officers from our precincts. They need our support. We are living in tough times regarding public safety, affordable housing, job security, schools, small business, and other issues. I look forward to working on these challenges with a community and people I adore and respect.
