Hurricane Sandy has delivered a knockdown punch to the shores of New Jersey and New York. Having been spared any significant issues from the storm, Norfolk and Virginia Beach residents come together to gather relief goods and provide manpower to assist coastal neighbors in the North. Exchange USA and The Banque provide logistical support and donation drop off resources.
Virginia Gentleman spearheading local efforts to help Sandy Victims rebuild their homes and lives. Exchange USA and The Banque are only too happy to join in the efforts to help those affected by this disaster. A call has gone out for relief and re-building supplies to be donated for residents of New Jersey and New York. These can include:
Food (canned goods only)
Saw Horses, Shovels and Rakes, Push Brooms
Tools- manual (hammer, screwdriver, wrenches) and power (drills, saws, etc.)
Clothing donations are discouraged at this time- the response in this respect was overwhelming and the resource needs really revolve around the clean-up and rebuilding efforts. Donations in Norfolk are accepted at Exchange USA from 10-7 Mon-Sat and after 7pm at the Banque. Danielle Hofmann, Exchange USA Representative states "please make an effort to help those whose lives have been forever changed by this storm. We can help fill the gaps that the government can't get to in time."
Plans are still being solidified but the expectation is the combined donations will be shipped North by November 15th. Anyone wishing to donate can simply drop of the requested goods at either location.
