A Roosevelt Island resident asked earlier today:
Please provide information on supplies for families in need because of the hurricane. I attended the Galleria Riva jazz salon last Sunday and was told that specific lists will be provided and items/goods accepted on Sunday mornings between 8 and 9 AM at the school. I cannot locate that information on any website. Thank you.
Karine Wong, who organized the Roosevelt Island Hurricane donations and deliveries to the Rockaways, provides the answer:
Hi Everyone,

Our next collect is on Sunday Nov 18 in front of PS 217 between 8:00 and 9:15 am and we will deliver on Monday morning to the Rockaways.

WE WILL NEED SOME HELP ON MONDAY PLEASE LET US KNOW IF YOU CAN JOIN US TO UNLOAD THE VAN. Thanks

Here is the list of things that they really need this week:
Towels
Toiletries
Work Gloves
Rubber Gloves
Air Mattresses
Snacks
Flashlights – they have batteries but not enough flashlights
Lanterns

Thank You

I noticed a RIOC poster up on a kiosk on Main St earlier today - announcing that Sandy donations can be dropped off at the RIOC office or PSD between the hours of 9-5. If Roosevelt Islander can get a copy of the poster from RIOC, it can be added to this thread. The items called for were similar to the items listed above, added mops, brooms, paper goods such as paper towels, canned food, winter coats, all types of batteries.
