Where To Help With Hurricane Sandy Relief
As we all see the damage and loss that hurricane Sandy has left in her path. Many of us are wondering just where to drop off items for donation or how to help raise money here locally to get those people the help they need. I’ve compiled a list of donation locations and benefits you can get involved with to help:
Townsquare Media Binghamton – 59 Court Street
Bring in your donations and drop them off in our lobby.
Saturday’s Binghamton Senators game against the Norfolk Admirals will host a supply drive to benefit victims of SuperStorm Sandy. B-Sens forwards Pat Cannone, Hugh Jessiman and B-Sens equipment manager Tom Severence have arranged the drive which will benefit two of the hardest hit areas in New York: Long Beach and Staten Island. Cannone and Jessiman are from the area and Severance lived near Long Beach for a time. The B-Sens are seeking the following items for donation:
Clothing – Both adult and child sizes, new or gently used
Energy and protein bars
Grab and go snacks (i.e. pretzels, crackers, etc.)
Meals in a can/Canned goods in general
Shelf stable milk
Ziploc bags – sandwich, quart and gallon sizes
Monetary donations will also be accepted. The “Hurricane Sandy Relief” table will be located on the main concourse of the Broome County Veterans Memorial Arena.
The Choconut Inn-10 Quaker Lake Rd Friendsville Pa
