The students and staff at my school I have started collecting several items for the victims of hurricane Sandy. We have been collecting household items, cleaning supplies and food. We have already made one delivery to Union Beach, NJ. Several students were displaced from their schools. Some schools will be started up in local community centers and churches, but they have little supplies since the schools and classrooms were damaged. There are entire towns that people have not been allowed to return to because they are not structurally safe.
I will be starting a collection of school supplies and art supplies to bring to the areas that need them. Can you start a collection from you students and school today??? If your students or school can donate ANYTHING I am sure it would be appreciated! I found this page on FB
This page lets your school adopt a school that needs supplies. If you want to mail some supplies but you can't adopt a school right now you can send them to :
c/o School Supplies for Hurricane Sandy Victims
P.O. Box 437
Helmetta, NJ 08828
Or you can ship the supplies to my school and I will drive them to the address above.
James Monroe El .School
7 Sharp Road
Edison, NJ 08837
Thank you blogger friends!! I know we can make a difference!
