The Fort Lee PBA is holding a “Drive for the Jersey Shore” to benefit some of the hardest hit victims of Hurricane Sandy this week starting Tuesday and running through the end of the month, according to PBA president Kevin Kosuda.
The local PBA, which will begin accepting donations on Tuesday, Nov. 20, is specifically looking to collect items identified as “most needed at this time.” Those items include but are not necessarily limited to non-perishable foods and canned goods, boxed cereals, cookies, water, sports drinks, baby formula and baby food and diapers.
Other needed supplies are toiletries for men and women, cleaning supplies, heavy-duty garbage bags, paper towels, bleach, flashlights, batteries and work gloves, but the PBA notes that all donations will be accepted.
“I am asking for everyone’s assistance for this effort to help those in need,” Kosuda said, urging PBA and community members to spread the word. “Once all donations are received, they will be driven directly down to the Jersey Shore.”
The Fort Lee PBA is collecting donations at the Fort Lee Police Department until Friday, Nov. 30, after which members will transport the supplies “directly to those communities that have been destroyed by the storm,” according to Kosuda.
Contact Kosuda at the PBA office at 201-592-3700, ext. 3518 or on his cell at 551-206-8026 for questions or more information.
