As the clean up continues in the hardest hit areas of the East Coast of the country, there are still many families without basic necessities and in desperate need. There are many Sandy Relief Drives organized through out the city to help those in need. They welcome donations such as: warm coats & sweaters, gloves, winter hats, towels, toilet paper, feminine hygiene products, toothpaste, toothbrushes, paper towels, non perishable baby food, canned food, crackers, chips, dried fruit & nuts, diapers, flashlights, batteries, candles, waterproof shoes, gloves and pet food.
The Goodwill organization and the Brother’s Brother Foundation are two organizations that are distributing basic necessities to people in need. Additionally, the Red Cross is providing shelter, food, emotional support and other assistance to those affected by Hurricane Sandy. If you want to help by giving a financial donation, please go to Red Cross. Let’s help those families that still do not have electricity and water and have suffered tremendous loss.
