Assistance Needed for the Irish Community in NYC

Rockaway is devastated completely. Many friends are homeless, car-less, and very much in need of help. Clothes, blankets, toiletries, diapers, jackets, baby items, etc. If anyone is up for cleaning out their closets…. Now is a great time. Horrific situation. …… There is no power or water in Rockaway. I just found out about the lack of water. I thought they at least had cold water! Wrong.

The Broad Channel Athletic League is accepting donations. All of the items mentioned above, food, shoes, bedding, air-beds, and anything else you can think of as many people have nothing left.

Town of Coxsackie Ambulance is accepting donations at 117 Mansion Street for the following items to be brought to affected areas of NYC: dry pasta, cereal, oatmeal, gatorade powder mix, protein bars, cereal bars, small bottles of OJ, gatorade and bottled water.

If anybody can help, please drop donations into the Aisling Center Friday 9am – 5pm or Saturday 10am – 2pm.
We are taking donations of specific items – towels (gently used/new), socks, diapers (all sizes), black garbage bags and bottled water for victims of hurricane Sandy in Rockaway Beach presently living in shelters.

If you drop your donations into the Aisling Center, we will deliver the donated items to the shelter by Tuesday. These people really need our help and we would appreciate it if you would show kindness to these people suffering such hardship right now. Thank you.
