I have been looking for an organization that is boots-on-the-ground helping those affected by Sandy, and accepting more than cash donations so we frugalistas/simple livers can help the only way we know how. I have vetted and can recommend the following:


PROJECT ENDLESS AGAPE is an organization which helps the homeless. They have been taking monthly trips into Philly for the last year and a half. With the recent devastation from Hurricane Sandy, they are now taking most of their supplies to help the shelters housing the victims of this disaster.

They are looking for donations of new and gently used:
- Blankets
-Coats
- Clothes (Men's, Women's and Children's)
-Toys and Games
-Pillows
-Baby Blankets
-Small flashlights
-Sleeping bags


They are also in need of:
-non-perishable food items (such as canned foods, Gatorade, Granola Bars, Energy and protein bars, grab and go snacks, cereal)
- Water
-Cleaning supplies
- Paper Products ( paper towels and napkins)
- Shovels
- Heavy duty brooms
