Important Ways to Help Storm Victims

 

We will again announce an indoor Tag Sale but we will wait a few days to set a date when we know more about how much and when the present  conditions will improve. For that, we plan to have Holiday ( Kwanzaa, Hanukkah, Ramadan, Christmas and other) items. If you have nice holiday stuff like ornaments, linens, dishes or gift wrap that you don’t need, consider donating them. Also if you have re-gifts ( the gifts you never found a use for … we won’t tell) , those are welcome too. Tag sale drop off points: WESPAC office  914 449 6514 , Martha Conte's 914 428 8276 or Gayle Dunkelberger's 914 232 6864. Please always call ahead for any drop offs.  However, keep these donations separate from anything you donate now to the hurricane victims.


 

Below is a list of items needed by those victimized by Sandy and drop off points which Nada has amassed from requests coming to the WESPAC office.
