Dear Medfield,

We need your help! We have the opportunity to support many families in New York and New Jersey that have been severely affected by Super Storm Sandy.

We have two different families that are collecting donations that they will be hand delivering to specific areas devastated by this storm.

First, Kim Joline and her mom, Monica Reid, are filling up a U-Haul truck with children's items (infants to 18 year olds) to be donated to charities in New York and New Jersey. The U-Haul will be departing from Medfield on Thursday, Nov. 15.

Here is a list of some of the items that they are collecting:

  • New or used children's winter clothes (coats, hats, mittens, socks, etc…)
  • Diapers
  • Toys
  • Books

If you would like to make a donation, please leave it at Kim Joline's home (47 Indian Hill Road) on her front porch. Donations may also be left at 8 Maple Street by the back door.  Please feel free to donate starting now through Wednesday, Nov. 14.

Second, Margaret Duggan will be doing several trips down to the Rockaway/Breezy Point area of New York to deliver much needed supplies. Growing up in that area she has many close friends who will be distributing the donations within these devastated communities.

Items most in need right now:

  • work gloves
  • garbage bags
  • cleaning supplies
  • rubber gloves
  • toiletries
  • healthy canned foods (peanut butter, fruit cups, granola bars)

If you would like to make a donation, please leave it at Laurie Nealon's house (7 Copperwood Road) in the cooler by the garage doors. Donations can be left any day between now and Nov. 30.

Also, if you would like to involve your children they are looking to bring drawings, or notes from children down with them to share with the families to show how so many people are thinking of them and praying for them.

As always, thank you for your generosity and support for those who are in need.
