Help Hurricane Sandy Albuquerque

A group of individuals got together to collect basics to deliver to New Jersey. The 1st load was delivered at a church in downtown Atlantic City. This time, we plan to go to Rockaway, NY.  We will be working with the Far Rockaway First Presbyterian Church. 


The money is needed for gas for the truck, purchasing supplies we don't get (like air mattresses or diapers or food); travel expenses.  

100% of the money raised will go to help residents of New York get the supplies we collect.  Last time we helped over 1,000 people!

List of items we are pushing for:   I am including the full list, but so far, we don't have ANY food.  We only have a few kids coats, no kids shoes, very few sheets and towels, and hardly any paper type products. Although I did not include a list of toiletries, we do need those as well.  Thank you so much everyone!  I could also really use help spreading the word!!
