Chatham Businesses Join Forces to Help in the Wake of Hurricane Sandy

Survivors of Hurricane Sandy need your help ~ With your help we can make a difference please support those struggling for basic necessities.

This past week has been a challenging time for most of us, loss of power, heat, internet, and not being able to get gas in our cars.  We are still fortunate to have a roof over our heads, food to eat and our families near.

For those that live at the Jersey Shore, their story is much different, loss of homes, unable to get home because of excessive damage, loved ones that are missing.

We want to help the shore rebuild, put a smile on the face of a mother that has no food for her child or a warm blanket to keep them warm. Please help us help the Jersey Shore by making a donation of money, food, water, new blankets, warm clothes or even your time.

Knowing I cannot do it alone I called Tony Britt and asked for his support, he immediately jumped in and help gather resources and support. We distributed 100+ posters and flyer's along main street businesses today. 

We will be parking our delivery truck on main street for the nest several days. Anyone that would like to donate in bulk we will be happy to come get it. Call 973-309-7225 to schedule a pick up. 

Come to Kitchen Intuitions in Chatham to drop off your donations or make a cash donation clicking here we will purchase items needed most to help those that are left in the wake of this disaster. Help us make a difference in someones life today.

All donations go 100% to help the victims of "Hurricane Sandy".

When are you accepting donations until... I'm hoping to collect a bunch of things from my Girl Scout troop (I'm the leader) at our meeting on Monday and then drop off on Tuesday Nov 13th if you are still accepting things then...

Thanks to everyone we have filled a second truck !! Kelly, I will be happy to make another run to bring down what you generate. Please pass the word along to other girl scout leaders or perhaps is there a forum where I can let other know that we wold do that for your troops? I was also contacted by a boy scout leader and will be asking him the same.
