A Fabulous Way to Help Hurricane Victims

5. November 2012 06:20 by tbev | 0 Comments

Just over a week ago, we here at 4my3boyz were bracing ourselves for Hurricane Sandy. It's projected path was right over us, so we prepared as best we could and hoped for the best. Many of you poured in well-wishes on Facebook, Twitter, and email (thank you, thank you, thank you!). Miraculously, we suffered only a bit of water in the basement, but there were so many others who were completely devastated by the storm not very far from where we are located. We've been doing our homework to figure out the best ways we can help our friends and neighbors in New Jersey and New York, and since we have the kindest, most caring customers ever, we thought we'd share our findings with you if you'd like to join in the effort.

Here are some ways you can help:

1. We are collecting new or gently used blankets, coats, hats, scarves, and gloves in good condition. We will be working with several churches in the hard hit areas of NJ and NY to transport them to where they are needed most. If interested, ship your items to the following address:

c/o 4my3boyz Fabrics
139 Sheehan Rd.
Avondale, PA

2. The Red Cross is a great way to send relief, and you can even make a donation via text message on your phone. Text REDCROSS to 9099 to donate $10, which will appear on your cell phone bill.

3. Purchase and wear a "Restore the Shore" hoodie. All proceeds go to benefit those affected by the storm.


If you are aware of someone in need as a result of Hurricane Sandy or know of any other legitimate organizations looking for help with donations, please do not hesitate to let us know. We have many local friends who have offered furniture and other larger items if needed. We would also like to keep these people and all of the victims in our prayers as they attempt to put their shattered homes and lives back together.
