Disaster Relief Drive for Hurrican Sandy Victims
Fri. Nov 9th 2012

First responders from North Whitehall Township have teamed up with responders from the Germansville Fire Company to collect relief supplies for our Brothers in New Jersey devastated by Hurricane Sandy. While some communities have made national news and are receiving truckloads of supplies from across the country, many areas have not been so fortunate. We have identified at least two Fire Departm

ents that have suffered near-total losses in their communities and even their own facilities. Many are still without power and may be that way for many days yet. Please join us in gathering supplies so that we can help them get themselves and their communities back together again. We have secured two enclosed trailers and are planning on leaving early on Saturday, November 17 to deliver the items. Items can be dropped off at the following locations:
