Bay Hundred Hurricane Sandy Relief Effort Seeks Donations

The Bay Hundred Hurricane Sandy Relief Effort, founded by local business, nonprofit and community leaders throughout Talbot County, will support NY and NJ victims of Hurricane Sandy with a clothing and supply drive. Due to difficulty with transportation within NJ and NY, monetary contributions are preferred. You can give financial support by sending a check to:

SMCC/Hurricane Relief
PO Box 354
St. Michaels, MD 21663
*Contributions are tax deductible

The group seeks local donations of warm clothing, blankets, cleaning and other supplies for distribution in New Jersey and New York communities that were hit hard by Hurricane Sandy. The most needed items are:

• Heavy coats, hats, gloves
• Blankets
• New underwear, socks, t-shirts (packaged new items only)
• Cleaning products, shovels, garbage bags
• C&D batteries, latex gloves, facemasks and goggles for clean-up efforts
• Diapers

Donations can be dropped off at the St. Michaels Community Center and the St. Michaels YMCA. The effort is expected to last as long as necessary – trucks are expected to leave from Bay Hundred each week for the rest of the year, or as long as needed. The first delivery is scheduled for Thursday, Nov. 8th.

Volunteers are needed to help with the effort. If you would like to volunteer, please contact the organizers at 410-253-4390 or by email
