Flyers inside Juniper Park are a bit of overkill
First, I think everyone supports the important work the American Red Cross does and know that the supply of donated blood could be a matter of life and death for many people. Keep up the great work!
Why so many? Wouldn’t a handful at the corners and a few in between give ample notice of this blood drive? Or better still, we have community bulletin boards in the local businesses. We have numerous Queens newspapers. We have Facebook and Twitter (Troop 106’s Facebook page has this blood drive posted).
These flyers deface the neighborhood and also teach the wrong message to the kids of Troop 106 - posting illegal flyers is OK if it’s for a good cause and be disrespectful to your neighbors and the city.
We trust that those responsible for putting them up will remove them. Be respectful to the neighborhood and city and take them down (don’t forget the tape) after the expiration of the blood drive (Sunday, 8/9/2014, 3pm).
Here is the NYC law describing postings on public property:
