Sandy relief

A friend of mine in NJ has a brother coordinating donations to some shelters in Staten Island, where he lives. He gave me the wish list for two shelters and assured me thatĀ UPS is getting through and they are accepting packages.

Here’s the wish list: cleaning supplies (brooms, rakes, gloves, face masks, garbage bags, bleach, mops and buckets, soap, etc), serving utensils (bowls, plates, spoons, forks, cups, etc), diapers, paper towels, baby formulas, batteries, water, blankets, sternos, toothbrushes and paste, soap, toilet paper, hammers, nails, wheelbarrows.

Addresses:

Molesi Club, 192 Ebbitts Street, Staten Island, NY 10306

VFW, 575 Mill Road, Staten Island, NY 10306.

Drugstore.com didn’t charge for shipping. I threw in some maxi pads, because I figure they might need those, too…

    Thank you for sharing this. I have been so moved by the people who have stepped forward to help. At the same time, I can’t stop thinking about how incredibly huge the need is, and how huge it will continue to be in the coming months.
