I got this notice of a neighbor to neighbor relief effort in progress to help out communities in Manhattan and Brooklyn that are really struggling with the basics – blankets, water, food, socks, towels, printer paper, pet foods, baby items: diapers etc. I know I’ve been wanting to help out since we came through the storm in one piece and wanted to pass it along to my fellow upper west siders. Check here for info on donations needed and community-led volunteer efforts: http://interoccupy.net/occupysandy
All relief sites need: blankets, water, food, socks, towels, printer paper, pet foods, baby items: diapers etc.
