Donations sought for Sandy victims

KEESEVILLE — A collection for Hurricane Sandy victims will take place from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday at the Keeseville Elks Lodge 2072.

This will be the second load of needed items sent from the North Country to Highland, N.J.

Needs are: household brooms and dustpans; mold ventilator face masks; contractor garbage bags; plastic storage bins; small kitchen appliances; laundry detergent; plastic snow shovels; metal rakes; any kinds of tools; sponge mops; dish detergent; fabric softener; dryer sheets; space heaters; mold spray such as Lysol disinfectant; and new twin- and queen-sized mattresses and box springs.

Storm victims are beginning stock up on Sheetrock and supplies such as Sheetrock nails and tape; and painting supplies such as trays, brushes and rollers.

No clothes or blankets are needed this trip since there was such a great response earlier in the recovery effort.

For more information, call Tonia Finnegan at 569-7202 or Dean Martin at 578-7027.

FYI...
  • Boston doctors can now prescribe you a bike

    The City of Boston this week is rolling out a new program that's whimsically known as "Prescribe-a-Bike." Part medicine, part welfare, the initiative allows doctors at Boston Medical Center to write "prescriptions" for low-income patients to get yearlong memberships to Hubway, the city's bike-share system, for only $5.
