The Long Island Chapter of the US Veterans Motorcycle Club is collecting donations on Wednesday for victims of last week's devastating tornadoes in the Midwest and South regions of the country.

You can drop off donations at the South Country Ambulance parking lot, at the corner of Montauk Highway and Dunton Avenue in East Patchogue, between 5-10 p.m. Wednesday.

Here's all the details via an email from USVMC-LI member Crystal Gajewski:

Tornado Victim Donations

If my dad was here he would have had the truck already packed and on its way down South, but he’s not so someone has to do it and I’ll take over for him. So with that being said, here are the details for the donations:

Wednesday, March 7, 2012 from 5 pm to 10 pm. If you get there earlier or can't get there at that time, you can drop it off with the Ambulance employees and we will load it when we get there.

Location: South Country Ambulance Parking Lot
Corner of Montauk Highway and Dunton Avenue
East Patchogue, NY

Donations Needed:
Bottle Water, Blankets, snacks, adult and children’s clothes, diapers and wipes, baby food/formula, juice (individual), packaged food, packages of new underwear, socks, children's shoes, lightly worn shoes/clothes, tarps, generators, paper products, toiletries, trash bags, and gift cards to Walmart, Lowes, Home Depot and Money donations.
If you want to make a cash donation, you can make the checks payable to Ski’s Open Heart Foundation or The American Red Cross.

You can mail checks to PO Box 675 Bellport, NY 11713 and they’ll get where they need to go.

Volunteers Needed:
To pack the boxes of supplies we receive and load on truck. We will also need people to supply boxes for the items to be packed in, so if you have any please let me know. Message or call me for more details.


Thank you,
Crystal L. Gajewski
