I got this email from Phil today. If you're looking to help people in need in NYC tonight is your night!
I was hoping that you might be able to get the word out about the donation drive I have going on tonight at Grand Central in Adams Morgan from 6-12 tonight. I am heading home to Staten Island tomorrow to help with the cleanup and am renting a truck to fill up with donations from DC people. Many people I spoke to here want to help but had no real outlet to do so and I thought this would be a great opportunity to do so.
Latest Update from people on the ground - They are doing well with clothing donations and are looking to concentrate on ready to eat/canned food, towels, blankets, cleaning supplies (gloves, masks, bleach, cleaners, etc), baby food/formula, diapers, and toiletries. I'll be taking all of these items tonight and any monetary donations will go to the purchase of more once I arrive home in Staten Island.
I hope you get this in time to share and please let me know if you want any additional information.
