continued From Wednesday, Nov. 7, to Friday, Nov. 9, the truck will be at the parking lot at BJ’s in Rotterdam. A second drop-off location is at Route 50 Storage, located at 736 Saratoga Road in Burnt Hills, from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., during the same three days.
“As good as the Red Cross is and all the other organizations are, they are not always able to pinpoint a particular area,” Mirabile said. “We wanted to really do something for our community and our neighbors.”
If you are unable to make it to the drop-off dates and are interested in helping out the Red Hook neighborhood, you can visit restoreredhook.org or redhook.recovers.org to make a donation.
Other collection points have sprung up around the area. Fogg’s Automotive & Suzuki has partnered with St. Jacobi Church and the Church of St. Luke & St. Matthew in Brooklyn and is serving as a donation dropoff point.
People are asked to donate baby supplies, cleaning supplies, clothing, non-perishable food items or any other household goods at its store, located on 642 Saratoga Road in Scotia. Donations will be accepted at the store until Friday, Nov. 16.
