Teaneck PBA Pitches in For Sandy Relief

Police officers collecting goods, food for areas hard hit by the massive storm.

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.

These people are some of the state's finest citizens and should be cared for as much as possible. They always take care of us, and often risk their lives doing so. Noah - I am sure many of these people could use some CASH to cover some immediate needs...even a couple of hundred bucks for each cop family heavily impacted along the NJ shore could be a tremendous help at this time. Do we know if they will be accepting cash / credit card / checks as donations as well or if the Tenafly "central" drop off location is accepting such? If not, do you know if there has been a fund set up for PBA, first responders, fire fighters impacted directly by Sandy?

I'm wondering of you can drop off items on Saturday...you know for the late Friday night worker...let me know what you think.

Jason Flynn, yes, the PBA does have such a fund. You can contact them via their website at njspba.com. But, I also have heard that the Teaneck PBA local is collecting money for one its officers whose house was destroyed in Moonachie, when the levy broke. He lost everything but the clothes on his back and his insurance doesn't cover flooding.
