The Mahwah Fire Department is asking residents to collect non-perishable food items, warm clothing and blankets, cleaning products, pet food, utility equipment like work gloves and other items to donate to residents at the Jersey Shore recovering from Hurricane Sandy.
Mahwah’s Fire Department has partnered with a local business – Ridgewood Moving Services – and a local group – the Mahwah Elves – to collect items to donate to Sandy victims in New Jersey. Items collected by the FD will be dropped off to Ridgewood Moving for transport to the Jersey Shore.
Donations will also go to Little Ferry, Moonachie and food will help restock the shelves of the Center for Food Action.
According to Elf Suzy Godding, new clothing and blankets (not used), new socks, hand sanatizer, and cleaning supplies are all needed.
Residents can drop off donations to any of the township’s five fire houses Wednesdays. During the day, items can be dropped off in front of the fire houses. From 7:30 – 10 p.m. Wednesday, firefighters will be on hand to collect donations.
Donaters can also drop goods off to Ridgewood Moving on Corporate Drive.
