However, please do not put together anything that is not first qualified, otherwise, it may not be needed and then will only become a burden

11/3 – Waiting to get a schedule together for pick ups, gas plays a role unfortunately.  Please keep up the emails.  Share this page as often as possible to keep the focus going.

11/4 – Thank you all.  I have received emails from some folks waiting to find out when we will be picking up.  Please be patient, waiting to get more organized on the timing.  Also, I will be posting different stores that the family can use Gift cards for.  Specifically waiting to find out what stores are close to where they are temporarily holed up.  Should know later today.

11/4 – 12:25pm – Ok, we are looking to put together a goal of $500.00 per store in gift cards.  Mind you, the size of the gift card does not matter, $5, $10, $25, $50, $100 or whatever.  I will update in yellow below as we get commitments for these cards.  Feel free to mail them or email them.  For the purpose of Gift Cards, please email to  If you want to mail them, please email me directly at for the mailing address.

11/8 11:20a – It’s confirmed.  Saturday will be pickup day for all goods.  Pickups will be made in NY, NJ, & Eastern PA. (Poconos Area).  Please, now is the time to email me your Cell#, Address, and obviously email address.  I need to plan the pick up route.  We desperately need clothes, toys, school supplies and gift cards.  Please do what you can under the current climate.

  1. Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates. I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this. Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.|
