SOMERS, N.Y. – A group of concerned Somers residents has gotten together to collect and donate supplies to residents of Breezy Point, an area almost totally devastated by Superstorm Sandy.
Needed most are: shovels and clean-up materials such as work gloves, mops, bleach, cleaning supplies, construction-type garbage bags, flashlights, C and D batteries, and extension cords.
Also needed are: space heaters, nonperishable food and juice boxes, baby items such as diapers and wipes, dog and cat food, and supplies and non-prescription medicines such as Advil and Tylenol.
No clothing is needed, except for men’s, women’s and children’s underwear. No water is needed.
People have already donated money for gasoline, but more trucks and vans are needed to make deliveries.
Especially in demand: boxes to hold the supplies. Volunteers to help sort and load are welcome, as are donations of hot soup and hot coffee, at both ends of the line.
Collections will be in the vacant building next to the Somers Eye Center, Route 202, on Saturday, Nov. 10, between noon and 5 p.m.
