JEWISH FEDERATION OF NORTHEASTERN PENNSYLVANIA:
SUPERSTORM RELIEF FUND
The tragedy of Hurricane Sandy and its aftermath has devastated the lives of millions of people in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut.
Hundreds of thousands are without food, water, medical supplies, shelter and the basic necessities of life. Their lives hang in the balance. As Jews, we must do our part in relieving their suffering as we have always done when faced with national catastrophes like Hurricane Katrina. The lives of millions of Americans hang in the balance. We must be there for them.
Tax-deductible contributions made out to the Jewish Federation of NEPA/Hurricane should be mailed to our office at 601 Jefferson Ave. Scranton, PA 18510.

This was posted by a member of the Nassau Region of Hadassah. Please read it and if anyone is willing to donate any of these items, we will get them to where they need to be. This disaster is hardly over.
Many of our members have been deeply affected by this storm and our hearts go out to those living along our coast, particularly with homes in: Long Beach, Lido Beach, Island Park, Oceanside, Baldwin Harbor, Hewlett Harbor, Rockaway Park, Inwood, Port Washington and South Freeport, Merrick, Bellmore, Wantagh, Seaford & Massapequa. We know that many others are still without power from all the fallen trees and wires.
In response to the need to help within our community, we are setting up a collection in association with Long Island Cares, the City of Long Beach Relief and the Town of Hempstead. Below is a list of needed items and drop off locations.
Long Island Cares:
Non-Perishable Foods, Water, Any Drinks in Plastic Bottles, Diapers and Baby Formula, Household Cleaning Supplies and Personal Care Items.
Diapers and Baby Formula, Children’s Shoes, Paper Towels, Baby Wipes, Toilet Paper, Batteries, Socks, Hats, Gloves, Winter Jackets and Clothes, and Winter Weight Blankets. In addition, it has come to our attention that the family men, working in Long Beach and the surrounding area, cleaning up their homes, are in dire need of clean X-Large T-Shirts and Sweatshirts.
In addition to warm clothing and blankets, the town is collecting necessities including bottled water, non-perishable food, hand sanitizer, toiletries, flashlights and batteries, portable battery-operated radios, cleaning supplies and rubber gloves
Thank you for your generosity.
Please forward this ahead to others.
