Anyone who wants to make a financial contribution, can direct it to The Salvation Army - noted Hurricane Sandy.  They are also taking donations of non-perishable food items, water, blankets, sleeping bags, flashlights, batteries.   


United Way of Northern New Jersey  

Considering the gas shortage, the United Way is advising residents to stay local and help neighbors in our communities by sharing a warm meal or an outlet to charge a cell phone. Or register with their Volunteer Link website here. You'll be invited to record your skills and interests so you can be alerted to suitable opportunities in your area as they arise.


For those wishing to make donations there is also the United Way Hurricane Sandy Recovery Fund. Financial donations are most efficient in bringing relief to those impacted. Cash can be used to meet specific needs of survivors while also rebuilding the local economy.
