Framingham Woman Coordinating Donations to NJ/NY Sandy Victims
What is needed: boots, batteries especially C & D, flashlights, hand/foot warmers, blankets, diapers, formula, baby food, toothbrushes, toothpaste, razors, deodorant, winter coats, socks, non-perishable foods, shovels
As a nor'easter named Athena hits New York and New Jersey, there are still thousands of residents in those areas some homeless and others in the dark due to Hurricane Sandy. Some have been without electricity and heat for 10 days.
Framingham resident Brenda Crawshaw is working with a group called "Massachusetts - New York Relief Runs" to bring much-needed supplies.
Crawshaw, who has family in New Jersey (she said they are fine), is the Framingham coordinator for the group.
She is amassing supplies for the "poorest and hardest hit communities in New York and New Jersey."
What is needed right now are: boots, batteries (especially C & D), flashlights, hand/foot warmers, blankets, diapers, formula, baby food, toothbrushes, toothpaste, razors, deodorant, winter coats, socks, underwear, shovels and non-perishable foods.
She added that small games and toys for children would also be greatly appreciated.
Framingham residents may drop off these item at Crawshaw's house at 945 Salem End Rd. up until noon on Saturday, Nov. 10.
Supplies will be delivered to the NY/NJ area on Nov. 11.
