Looking to help victims of Hurricane Sandy? This Sunday, January 13, is a good chance.
Round II of Litchfield’s hurricane relief effort will be held from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Town Hall parking lot. The “Sandy Team,” with help from Litchfield High School’s Interact Club, will be collecting school supplies for students at the Frederick Douglass Academy, a high school in the Far Rockaway section of Queens, N.Y., that was devastated by Sandy. Many of the school’s 450 students lost their school supplies when their homes were flooded or destroyed.
Items sought are paper, notebooks, pens and pencils, rulers, index cards, binders, backpacks, makers and erasers. Cash will also be accepted as will gift cards to Home Depot, Lowe’s and CVS. Please help if you can!
