Rotary Clubs Collecting Small Appliances for Sandy Victims

The Patterson and Brewster Rotary Clubs are collecting small appliance donations to help those families living along the coast recover from Hurricane Sandy.

“Since the day Hurricane Sandy washed through the coastal neighborhoods of the northeast, many residents have been surviving by camping in the hollow shells that were once their homes,” said Patterson Rotarian Bill Flash said. “The storm surge filled the main floor of many houses and washed away all of the conveniences we often take for granted. The telephones, televisions, toasters, microwaves, and coffee makers that weren’t swept away were rendered useless after being submerged.”

Volunteers from the local Rotary Clubs in Patterson and Brewster have joined together in an effort to help replace some of those items.
