Easy-peasy Way to Help Sandy Folks

Posted on the 30 November 2012 by Jlipnack @jlipnack

Coats. "New or clean gently used." 50K needed for Sandy victims.

Drop-off centers are in Prospect Park, Brooklyn. Most people I know have a connection to Brooklyn -- friends are driving back and forth from Boston all the time.

So...If you know someone, send a coat or two. If you know me, email me and I'll make sure the coats get there.

Here's the article in full just in case clicking doesn't happen:

New York Cares is collecting new or clean gently used coats to help those affected by Hurricane Sandy. Over 50,000 coats are needed to help victims in areas such as Staten Island and the Rockaways.
