Spearheaded by Brian Lowe, the project is a personal project of several Montclair foodies and restaurateurs to help those in crisis at the beloved Jersey Shore. Today (Wednesday 7 November 2012, from 10 am to 11pm)
Pig and Prince will serve as a collection location for warm clothes and blankets for those displaced by Hurricane Sandy. With a harsh winter storm arriving today, and temperatures getting colder by the day, the donations are critically needed.
Gloves are greatly needed. I recently discovered packs of work/garden gloves at Home Depot sold in packs of 10 or 12 for about $10. These are not hardcore winter gloves, but they make a world of difference and can stretch your donation dollars to help many more people that you ever thought. Socks are also greatly appreciated.
We all know how warm feet make a world of difference on a cold night, and new clean socks can make a difference. Hit the discounters for great deals on packs of socks, again, your donation dollars can affect more people by going the bargain route. The collection is running through 11pm tonight.
Hoodies! Everyone knows I love my hoodies and they are in great demand. Go large, a large comfy hoodie is warm and comforting.
That’s enough time to do an inventory of blankets, run them through the wash and have them folded and ready to be put to use tonight.
Cleaning supplies are greatly needed. As families seek to recover irreplaceable items from their homes they are encountering mold, mildew, and grime. Donations of cleaning supplies as well as respirator masks are in great need.
Pig And Prince is located at 1 Lackawanna Plaza Montclair NJ. That’s the old Lackawanna Railroad terminal building which has been painstakingly restored to its past grandeur by Chef Mike Carrino.
