Monmouth County has established a donation site for items to assist those affected by Hurricane Sandy. The site has been set up at Thompson Park, 805 Newman Springs Road (Route 520) in Lincroft, according to a press release issued by the county.
The donation center is located at the service entrance of the park. It is open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. to receive donated items.
Items needed include:
- Bottled Water
- Non perishable food
- Pet food
- New clothing
- Personal hygiene items including baby items
Thompson Park is a donation site only - no distribution will be made there. Items will be sorted and taken to three distribution sites in strategic areas in Monmouth County. These sites will be announced when the items have arrived at those locations.
"This is a way for residents to help out during this time of need," Sheriff Shaun Golden said in the press release. "Through this process, donations from those who were fortunate during Hurricane Sandy can assist those who were less fortunate."
