Royal Rangers planning second trip Thursday to NYC for Sandy relief efforts
Submitted by Howard Owens on December 4, 2012 - 12:59pm
The Royal Rangers and the Batavia Assembly of God have put together a team to go to Island Park in NYC to help work on houses that were affected by Hurricane Sandy.
We will be leaving on December 6th. This will be our second team that has been sent to that area.
Our work will consist tearing out drywall, insulation, flooring and anything else that was damaged by the water. The community that we will be going to got power back just over two weeks ago. The need is still very great with very few people able to live in their homes.
We are looking for donation: Ensure, water, baby food, baby formula, diapers, small bags of pet food, winter hats, winter gloves/mittens, scarves, sneakers, winter boots, new winter socks, coats, jackets, new blankets, hand sanitizer, large heavy-duty garbage bags, dish soap, paper towels, toilet paper, cleaning gloves, face masks, Lysol disinfectant, Clorox wipes, bleach, mops and pails.
Beacuse it is the Christmas season we are also asking for homemade Christmas cookies. These cookies will be dropped off at the volunteer fire department so that they may hand them out. These people have lost everything!
Donations mybe dropped of at the Batavia Assembly of God Church at 24 N. Spruce St. in Batavia. Please have all donations at the church by Dec. 5th. Thank you for your support.
