Just wanted to let everybody know that we will be still collecting through Friday! Please give Chuck or Jen a call at the numbers listed above on the blog if you need more information and drop off locations. We need to stop collecting clothes but received a call that they are in dire need of new socks and underwear - we also still need food, duct & masking tape, shovels, first aid kits, school and office supplies and so much more. THANK YOU EVERYBODY who has already called, pitched in and donated - it is greatly appreciated. Our receivers on the NJ end are so excited that we are coming with Love from the Poconos on Saturday :)

Hi Rocky, Thank you so much for your support. This weekend proved successful but we still need more - especially new socks and underwear. I tried posting an update in comments but could not. Could you please let the folks know we will be collecting through Friday and they can call Chuck or Jen for the details on items still needed and locations to drop off? Have an awesome week!
