    I thought about donating food items. People living there have to travel elsewhere now to shop for anything and I am sure convenience stores are running low on some food items. There are a lot of older people living in EL and if they do not have a vehicle to travel they could be stuck for groceries. I hope some of our local stores & or businesses will donate food items for people in need.

    There is a grocery store and extra trucks can be ordered quickly. I don't know where anyone will find a pair of socks though. All the clothing stores were in that mall.

    they are taking donations to help the people who are now unemployed, i posted the info earlier in the other thread. they are also asking that donations be made to the food bank and people bring water/supplies to feed the people who are still on site and have been for days. other than that people are just gathering downtown.

    Why not contact our Local Red Cross and see if they are assisting in any way! They have a Disaster Response Team I believe!

    Babzz - could you please let me know if you figure out a way to Elliot Lake? My son and his crew are there and they have no supplies. No pillows or blankets, and they went without any real idea how long, so they need personal stuff like clothes.

    So if you find a way, please let me know.
    I just dont' have time in my schedule this week or I'd run down myself - I may find I have to IF we cant figure out a way to get them stuff.

    Red Cross has a team in Elliot Lake waiting to see where/when they are needed.

    ma, is there anything else the men need? no one has been told that they need anything other than water/food. i guess it should go without saying. i have posted on facebook that fresh clothes and personal supplies are needed. are you able to ask your son where we should be bringing these items?
