Throughout November, we received generous donations from colleagues, friends, and nearby local businesses. We were very lucky to receive a huge assortment of necessary goods for women and children from participating Duane Reade stores in Manhattan. You can read and see photos of our drop offs in Staten Island and Far Rockaway here.
The day after Thanksgiving, my family came to visit me from Buffalo and volunteered to distribute these contributions to women and children affected by Hurricane Sandy throughout the New Jersey coast. We hope we’ve made an impact in some of these people’s lives. And we want to thank everyone who contributed donations to the cause.
