Hi everyone, we have been contacted by some friends and family affected by Hurricane Sandy who are looking for some very basic essentials. I am sure you have seen the photos and news reports on the complete devastation that has taken place along the Jersey shore and NY area (as well as many other places). Please read below and contact me if you are able to help out in any way.
Here is the message we received from people in NYC/NJ area:
“I know money is tight, but we need supplies that many of us have laying around. If you could spare the postage, I will distribute the things you send to my friends and neighbors who have literally lost everything but the clothes on their backs.
What we need:
- gift cards – especially those to place where you can buy food or clothes
- non-perishable food
- new socks and underwear – all sizes, adult and children
- toiletries – all types
- cat and dog food
- diapers and baby supplies
- cleaning supplies and heavy duty trash bags
With much appreciation and thanks!”
Please contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org or 857-488-2741) if you are able to help out – anything, no matter how small will make a big difference.
If you would like to put together your own package and ship it yourself you can contact me for the shipping address and I will send you a message with the information.
Let’s help bring some light and hope to those who have lost everything!
(Please share this information with anyone who could or would be interested in helping out. Thanks!)
