Where in NJ you can drop off humanitarian donations for Ukraine
*UPDATE as of March 8th* The Center has been overwhelmed with donations and won't be taking any more at this time. Thank you all for your generosity!
If you’ve been struck by the disaster befalling the people of Ukraine at the contemptuous hand of Vladimir Putin and feel helpless as the Biden administration takes only half measures, here’s something you might want to know about.
The town of Sea Girt, New Jersey, recently partnered with Ukrainian Center of New Jersey. The center has launched a humanitarian aid drive and the town is helping out. I received details on this from a listener. Donations are being accepted directly at the Sea Girt Police Department.
Before I give you the list of items needed, please know they need all donations boxed and ready to be shipped with an itemized inventory label taped to the top.
The needs list is broken down to a higher priority list and a normal priority list.
First aid kits
Cell phones iPhone 6 or higher new/used
Baby diapers all sizes
Sleeping bags dark colored
Tents dark colored
Some of the normal priority items
Clothing, men’s women’s and children’s
Empty containers for liquids (10 to 20 liters)
