Coming Together To Help Sandy Victims

Collection drives popping up in our area for victims in Long Beach, Staten Island and elsewhere.

Communities across the country are taking up collections for Hurricane Sandy's victims, and right here on the South Fork is no different.

Romaine Gordon, owner of B. East Fitness Studio in Amagansett, has organized a clothes and toiletries drive. Bring warm clothes, coats, wet wipes and toiletries to donated to those "that weren't as lucky as we were when Sandy struck," she wrote in an email blast to clients. Gordon said she was still finalizing details as to how to hand them out, but assured she will get donations to where they are needed. The studio entrance is in the parking lot behind Mary's Marvelous and Indian Wells Tavern.

Lululemon Athletica, at 35 Main St. in East Hampton Village is also collecting items such as clothes, coats, toiletries, and even diapers. They've just asked that when you drop off you separate them under "Mens, Women's, Children's, or Toiletries. On the store's Facebook page, they wrote, "More details will follow as to when we are making deliveries."

Kailani, at 729C Montauk Hwy. in Montauk, is collecting the following items for hurricane victims in the Long Beach area:

  • Clothing (for babies, children, adults) everything from new underwear, socks, coats, shoes, pajamas, pants and shirts.
  • Toiletries: shampoo, conditioner, soap, deodorant, shaving cream, disposable razors, hair brushes, hair ties.
  • And for the kids: diapers, baby wipes, toys, crayons, coloring books.

At the Gayle Miller Annyx, a drive has been established for those who lost their homes on Staten Island. Bring warm coats, blankets, hats, scarves, gloves, etc. to the Annyx at 150 Main St. in Sag Harbor on Saturday and Sunday. For more information call 631-725-9064.

I HAVE COPIED AND PASTED THIS TO SPREAD THE WORD: Donations can be dropped at C's Home Management (the corner of Noyack Road and Pineneck Avenue). Awesome Cindy Ward Capalbo - you rock! So many people I have run into the past few days have had personal experiences with family and friends that have lost everything due to Sandy. We all want to help. so right now we are coordinating 2 groups to take donations in. We are asking for clothes (labeled with size) , blankets, shoes, jackets, and gift cards for any amount. Our office drop off location is 3329-3331 noyac road. Enter thru the back parking lot the middle entrance with 2 doors. We are opened Monday thru Friday 8 to 5. If we know your coming we can meet you there and will check the drop throughout the days over the weekend. During the week we will be there. Thank you. Being part of such a great community and passing along our love and support will hopefully go a long way

just make sure you have a place on the ground to receive stuff. yesterday there were blocks of donations dropped off in staten island and no place to store and not enough people to sort and distribute. have been hearing from those on the ground that urgent need is people are hungry - so ready to eat food is critical. also cleaning supplies. this i heard from peeps in Rockaways. food and cleaning supplies and volunteers needed.
