As you are undoubtedly aware, millions of people across the area have been affected by Hurricane Sandy. Homes have been flooded or washed away, electricity has been out for days, and dozens have died. It’s been a sobering reminder of what are truly the most important things in life.
While we can’t do much to bring people power or shelter, that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t try to help our neighbors. So Wednesday at El Pastor (570 Market St. Newark), before and after the playoff game against DC, we’ll be holding a relief drive. PLEASE DONATE WHATEVER YOU CAN. So much help is needed on so many different levels, but here is a short list of what is most needed:
Gift cards for department stores, supermarkets and gas stations
Clothing, specifically gloves, hats, coats and NEW underwear and socks
Pet food and supplies
Of course, money is always helpful. Any monetary donations will go to the Red Cross.
We know that a lot of you that are reading this – and those that can’t read this – are those most directly affected by the storm. We’re with you, and we’ll do whatever we can to help.
