#GivingTuesday Rent Party

For a second year in a row, Weeksville is a finalist for the $100,000 Spark Prize for Brooklyn nonprofits! In recognition of this honor, @BrooklynFoundation has awarded us a matching grant for #BrooklynGives to fund repairs of the Historic Hunterfly Road Houses. Help us hit our goal by gettin' down for an old school rent party!
