Everyone knows someone who was affected by the hurricane last week. While we’re all looking for ways to send our support to those in need, the amazing Mamatoga has worked together with local businesses to create drop boxes for the Hurricane Sandy Relief Supplies Drive in the Saratoga Area.
With 17 local businesses participating, all you have to do is drop off one of the many needed donation items at the businesses “drop box” between now and Tuesday, November 6th at 1pm. Additionally, several of the businesses are even offering a special incentive for donations.
Check out all of the participating businesses here:
- Hot Yoga Saratoga
- Adirondack Appliance
- Roohan Realty
- Bloom: A Movement Space (will give a free zumba, turbo kick or PiYo class with any donation)
- UNO Chicago Grill
- Cantina (offering free drink tokens to anyone who donates)
- The Children’s Museum at Saratoga
- Tiny Tots Tea Room
- Mouzon House
- Comfort Kitchen (free tater tots to anyone who donates)
- Saratoga Paint and Sip Studio (will give anyone who donates there a free 2FOR1 drink coupon)
- Hair Creations (will give $5 off any service to anyone who donates)
- Crush and Cask (will give $1 off any bottle of wine for those who donates)
- The Hampton Inn
- Aggie Mullaney
- Eugenio’s Cafe
Some of the supplies needed includes shampoo, combs, tissues, baby wipes, hand sanitizer and deodorant. For a full list of items, visit Mamatoga.com.
Advantage Transportation and Capital District Medical Transportation are joining efforts to help support Hurricane Sandy disaster relief by running a merchandise drive for Kids in Distressed Situations, Inc. (K.I.D.S.). Once the drop off period is over, the collected supplies will be picked up from the participating locations and they will be brought to Albany. Advantage Transportation will bring these goods on Wednesday, November 7th to K.I.D.S. Brooklyn Distribution Warehouse where the items will be sorted and distributed to the disaster areas.
Please come out and help support those who are in desperate need of these items right now. We were so fortunate that our area wasn’t hurt by the hurricane, but there are so many who weren’t so lucky. Just a single donation can make a difference, so just do it!
