MORRISTOWN, N.J. – In collaboration with local disaster relief organizations, United Way of Northern New Jersey has assembled a list of the most essential items needed across its five-county region to support disaster relief and recovery efforts in the wake of Hurricane Sandy.
“We know folks want to help. And we want to make sure those in crisis get the items that will make the biggest difference for them right now,” said United Way of Northern New Jersey CEO John Franklin.
Area residents are encouraged to use this list as a guide for items that can be donated to local food banks, pantries and disaster relief organizations:
Gift cards for gas and groceries in $10 to $25 denominations
