Volunteers who want to pitch in with the cleanup effort in beach communities devastated by Hurricane Sandy can meet Assemblywoman Nicole Malliotakis on Saturday to go to work. Gather at the end of New Dorp Lane and Cedar Grove Avenue at 9 a.m. From there, workers will be dispatched.
Volunteers should bring what tools they can — rakes, shovels, push brooms — and work gloves. Those who are unable to work the cleanup are urged to donate equipment — brooms, garbage bags, rakes, work gloves and shovels. They can be dropped off at Monsignor Farrell High School in Oakwood.
For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Donations of items such as blankets, coats, gloves and hats may also be made at Monsignor Farrell and other sites.
City Councilman James Oddo’s office also tells us of three places that can use volunteers—St Christopher’s Church (from the ferry, take the S78 or S79 to Midland Avenue), Rabs Country Lanes (from the ferry, take the S79 to Liberty Avenue then walk North on Hylan Blvd to Raritan Ave) and Crossroads Church at 168 New Dorp Lane (from the ferry, take the S76).
