I have scarves and blankets but was told that unless items are sealed and new they will not accept (especially my handknit blankets).  Are you sending to a drop off center, or are you giving to people directly?  I promise no bed bugs in any item I'm donating.

Hi I live in Staten Island near Mildand Beach and New Dorp Beach. I work in Manhattan (53rd and Lex) so if anyone wants me to bring the donations to my area let me know. Our area was hit very hard and I know they need blankets, and outerwear,
 
I think a Scarves for Sandy or knit cap would be great.
 
Thank you
Anna Fiorentino

NYC Fire Department is accepting donations at their houses for Staten Island. They are making a big push to assist families on Staten Island.  One of the Firefighters told us the greatest need is for children - they need every type of clothing. I've decided this is a good time for me to clean out my closets for clothing, sheets and blankets. I don't have power yet but I DO have the power to help those in need.

The NYC volunteer site lists many areas - however Staten Island is mentioned only once. (to clean up a park). 

On Saturday, at the NYC Marathon Expo donations were being made for Staten Island - specifically for South Beach and one other that escapes me - Midland?? The runners were dropping all their clothing in the boxes that the Fire Dept throughout the day gathered up, loaded on to trucks bound for Staten Island that night.

If you have friends & family with growing children (kids do that constantly), ask if they would like to do a quick clean out of clothing.... & to spread the word. Drop off at your local Fire House. 

How about we have a Knit Sandy Caps the Kids? or scarves & mittens. or Sandy bundles up the Kids.....
