THE SANDY SUPPLY DRIVE!
We are now a drop-off/organization point for a Sandy relief effort.

Old Clothes (Sweatshirts, Sweatpants, Socks)
Freeze Gel Packs (the kind that snap in half)
Heat packs (that heat upon opening)

THE PLAN -
::Tomorrow morning at 8am, we will start making sandwiches and rationing items.
::At 11am crews will leave for Brighton Beach, where we know of five 23 story buildings that have no power and are filled with the elderly. If we are able, we will then head to the Rockaways and downtown Manhattan.
::If you have a truck or car that has a full tank, we can either use the transportation for more crew, or siphon your gas.
::If you would like to make a donation via paypal for us to buy supplies with, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for the paypal addres.
