Bergen County To Accept Donated Items To Aid Sandy Victims

Four drop-off locations have been established to make sure donations make it to the people most affected or displaced by the storm.

Bergen County is accepting donations to help people who were either displaced or “severely impacted” by Hurricane Sandy, County Executive Kathleen Donovan announced Sunday.

According to Donovan, people are in particular need of things like new clothes—she specifically noted that used clothing should instead be dropped off at a Salvation Army location—new blankets, non-perishable food items, cleaning products, hand sanitizers, dog and cat food and gift cards with which people can buy other items they may need.

“Many of our generous, community-minded residents have been asking how they can help those in need in Bergen County,” Donovan said in a statement. “I want to thank them for their kindness and encourage all those who can help our fellow citizens to please do so.”

Donovan said the following drop-off have been put in place in order to make sure the items people donate reach those in need:

  • Community Transportation at 178 Essex St. in Lodi
  • Midland Park Senior Center at 46-50 Center St. in Midland Park
  • St. Margaret of Cortona Church at 31 Chamberlain Ave. in Little Ferry
  • The PSE&G Disaster Recovery Center at 100 Redneck Road in Moonachie, where there is a tent set up in the field next to UPS

Donations can be dropped off at any of these locations between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m.

In the latest twist, Thompson's http://www.louisvuittonoutletcft.net/ successor as the BBC's top executive, George http://www.louisvuittonoutletsc.com Entwistle, resigned on Saturday http://www.burberryscarfoutletvip.com after a November 2 "Newsnight" report http://www.coachfactoryoutletonlinebc.org wrongly implied that a http://www.coachoutletod.com former British politician http://www.coachoutletpn.com sexually http://www.coachfactoryoutletbo.net abused a child.

The Times did not http://www.coachoutletonlinelsa.com make Thompson available for interviews on http://www.coachoutletdt.net Monday.

Can the county or someone arrange for pickup? I have some larger items that are too large to drop off; I would need someone to pick them up.
