Young local scouts are apparently committed to making a difference to those people whose lives were severely disrupted by Hurricane Sandy.
The boys of Cub Scout Den 5, Pack 30 in Chestertown will be holding a drive from 11 a.m to 1 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 10 and Sunday, Nov. 11 to collect donations for Hurricane Sandy relief efforts.
The boys will be accepting items outside the Town of Chester Municipal Center — across from the Grand Union — on Saturday and on Sunday after the local Veterans Day memorial service.
Urgent supplies needed include blankets, flashlights, water, non-perishable food, batteries, diapers and wipes, pet food, work gloves, masks, rubber boots, flat shovels, heavy duty contractor bags, wheelbarrows, headlamps, cleaning supplies (bleach, hard bristle brooms, long handled squeegees, string mops and industrial mop buckets), serving dishes and utensils, plus anything that retains heat, including winter wear —jackets, hats, and gloves, etc.
A local family will be transporting the donations to Ocean County, N.J. on Nov. 15.
