The Teaneck Policemen's Benevolent Association is collecting food and clothing for those hardest hit by Hurricane Sandy. Officers will be collecting a range of items Friday at the Chestnut Municipal Parking Lot at American Legion Drive and Alma Terrace, across from Stop & Shop.
The collection will run from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
The following message, from Detective Kevin Brennan, has more information:
While most of us have had to deal with power outages and gasoline shortages, there are some that have lost their belongings, homes, and in some cases their lives. The Teaneck PBA Local 215 is doing its part to provide relief for the PBA members in the areas most affected by Hurricane Sandy. We will be holding a Food/Clothing Collection Drive on Friday, November 9, 2012.
The items that we are collecting are the following:
Soap, shampoo, disposable razors, shaving cream, toothpaste, toothbrushes, diapers, new towels and washcloths, toilet paper, blankets, linens, underwear, socks, new and used clean clothing, kids/baby clothing, canned goods, boxed cereals, non-perishable foods, batteries, flashlights, and gas cans.
The items will be then be taken to Tenafly Police Headquarters which is the collection point in Bergen County for the New Jersey State PBA. All are encouraged to donate or assist in the drive. Below are the specific details of the event. Please pass this along to family, friends, and the public. Let me know if you have any questions.
