Food Aid Drop Off Locations: U.S. Northeast

The following are Food & Aid Drop Off Locations in the Northeast to help the people affected by the tsunami. Some centers also need volunteers!

Do not just send stuff!

Please call your nearest center for details on what they need.

They are coordinating with agencies on the ground in affected areas to send the required supplies. Extra stuff will just bog them down un-necessarily.

yes please give.put aside petty griefs and political anger such as seen in these blogs. Give what you can . Amazing what this country (which the author of this blog hates so much)has already pledged.
already private donations from u.s . citizens have eclipsed any on record. Our country has given not only money but enourmous resources as well.I hope the pictures of our military personel performing lifesaving tasks for people in need will make some of you think.remember too, that the victims are largely muslim .Also, no not lose sight of the tremendous work being down by christian groups who are gathering money and getting on planes to provide relief directly.This is the united states and christian charity at work.

Yes anonymous . This is a time to give to those who need our help . The many charitable christian groups in this country have certainly provided huge amounts of aid. However, many other groups as well as private citizens of this country and of the world have done the same. More help is desperatley needed and i am confident that people of all nations and persuasions will bring their resources to the task.
