NYC just received its’ first large snowfall and soon will get more. The NYPD and FDNY confiscated six generators on Friday, as well, so now the protesters are in need of emergency supplies crucial for cold weather survival (and occupation). They have received some winter gear in the last 48 hrs but definitely need more. Please help by purchasing or donating supplies directly. Winter gear and other necessities can be dropped off in person, delivered, or shipped.
