RPC - Helping out after Sandy - November 8
Working through our Presbyterian connections in Staten Island they are requesting specific items this week. We will gather them here at RPC and plan on driving them down Saturday. Please bring items to the Assembly Room at RPC anytime before Saturday at 10.
Here are the latest needs:
· BLANKETS (there is also need for these in a local shelter)
· Coats (new preferred)
· waterproof boots
· new socks
· new underwear (adult)
· new t-shirts (adult)
We will also be assembling Emergency Clean-up Bucket Kits. To help purchase items needed for these kits, click on this link to sign up. (You will have to “rsvp” to do so.) While it says it is a Saturday “event,” supplies can be dropped off before then.
