Donations for Hurricane Sandy Victims Still Accepted Today by Wyandotte Rotary

Items can be dropped off from 4 to 7 p.m. today at 2430 Biddle Ave.

The Wyandotte Rotary Club and Henry Ford Wyandotte Hospital are teaming up for one more day to help gather donations for the victims of Hurricane Sandy.

Continuing an effort begun last week, donations will be collected from 4 to 7 p.m. today at 2430 Biddle, which is a hospital-owned building that is located across the street from the facility.

Wyandotte Rotary Club member Jay Blackburn said last week’s donation drive went well, but they can still use more supplies to help those in need.

Blackburn said all donations collected at the site during the last two weeks would be loaded onto a truck and taken to the East Coast later this week.

Once the truck arrives, he said the local Rotary members making the trip would meet up with East Coast Rotary members and help them distribute the donations.

Mary Kehoe, governor for Rotary District 6400, which includes southeastern Michigan and southwestern Ontario, first kicked off the project.

Following her lead, Blackburn said that most clubs throughout the district had gotten involved in some way with collecting donations for the hurricane victims.

Below is a list of what donations are needed:

Food Clothing Personal Hygiene Cleaning Supplies Household Items Baby Food Sweat Pants Toothbrushes Brooms Linens Water Sweatshirts Toothpaste Mops Blankets Non-perishables Underwear Shampoo Buckets Furniture Energy Bars
Coats Lotion Bleach Beds
Shoes Diapers Window Cleaner Mattresses
