Horsley Asks for Volunteers Today as Donations Arrive for Sandy Victims

A truck full of supplies will arrive at the former OLPH School in Lindenhurst at 4 p.m. today, and Legislator Wayne Horsley is seeking volunteers to help unload, according to his office.

Legislator Wayne Horsley (D, Babylon) started a food, clothing and supply collection drive - Operation Sandy - on Monday at his district office in Lindenhurst.

And now his office is asking for volunteers to come today at 4 p.m. to the former OLPH School in Lindenhurst to help unload a truck full of donations.

According to an e-mail from his office earlier today, "Today (Tuesday, November 6, 2012) a truck full of supplies will arrive at the former OLPH school in Lindenhurst. Delivery will be made to the rear entrance on High Street at 4 p.m. Volunteers are needed to help unload."

To donate materials and supplies can be dropped off at Horsley's office at 123 North Wellwood Avenue in Lindenhurst all week long from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Horlsey suggested the following items be collected: Ready-to-eat, non-perishable foods, cereal bars, cereal, Carnation instant breakfast, canned fruit, peanut butter, jelly, bread items, tuna, nuts, juice boxes, iced tea, water and baby food, diapers, etc.

Gift cards to local restaurants or drug stores are also welcome.

In addition, batteries, blankets, flashlights, hand sanitizer, cleaning supplies and school supplies, as well as paper goods such as plates, cups, utensils, napkins, paper towels and trash bags are also needed.

Blankets, pillows and air mattresses are also needed. 

Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church in Lindenhurst will serve as a distribution point for the collected items. The church will be open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. and 3 p.m. to 6 p.m.

“Restorations will take time," Horsley said. "Together we can help each other through this crisis. I ask those of you who are able to contribute to this effort to help ease the stress and hardship our neighbors are facing."
