Donation Success and Friday's Drop Off Locations

This update is over 30 days old.

We did great again today! We were able to get three big cars full of supplies out to Far Rockaway, where they are very much needed.

What it looks like people need most are blankets, candles, flashlights, batteries, water, food, socks, towels, printer paper, baby items: diapers etc., pet food, Propane grill or camping style oven, Plates, cups, forks, bowls, spoons, etc, blankets, jackets, gloves, hats, anything to keep folks warm, cleaning supplies - buckets, squeegies, mops, bleach, masks, gloves for cleaning, socks, water, tarps, garbage bags

Other needs are boots, electric stove, gas stove, satellite phones, big paper, tape, markers, pens, paper, notepads, generators, pumps, camping tables, gasoline, gasoline containers, percolator, fire extinguishers, walkie talkies, i9 tablets, and a projector/illuminator

We have a lot of clothes. People need these, but we also need other supplies.

Also, if anyone from the area can pick donations up and shuttle them to the Rockaways, we very much need volunteers to do so. There is almost no gas to be found in our area, so we need people who have a full tank and can take donations. We are trying to locate sites where gas may be available and link volunteers up with them. Please call (347) 762-1648 if you can help with this need.

Thanks! You're all wonderful!


  • Should we call Leni to schedule a time to drop off or can we just stop by with our donations? This is awesome, thanks so much for organizing!

  • They accept donations on Saturday as well. I noticed they did not have as much water. They also need more cleaning supplies. Anything helps. Batteries, candles, warm clothes and blankets.
