In response to storm recovery efforts at the Jersey shore, we will be collecting supplies AND having a special *FREE Public Talk* this Saturday, Nov. 17 (10:30 am - 12:00 pm) at the Eatontown Public Library.  See the MeetUp announcement for details on the talk, and below for a list of needs.  For those who wish to bring donations to help victims of the storm, we have partnered with two organizations:  Coba Yoga (where we hold meditation classes) and Habcore (a local disaster relief organization).  See below for lists of specific needed items.

Please come out on Saturday to show your support for victims of the Hurricane!  
Warm regards,
Dharmachakra Buddhist Center
