Harlem’s La Casa Azul Bookstore has stepped up to help residents affected by the gas explosion that destroyed two buildings in East Harlem on Wednesday. The store is now acting as an auxiliary center for donations and is accepting contributions of water, canned and packaged food, clothing, school supplies, and toiletries during store hours. Donations dropped off by March 16 will be delivered to Assembly member Robert Rodiguez’s office to be distributed to those affected.
