BRATTLEBORO -- The Rotary Clubs of Brattleboro are organizing a collection of relief items for victims of Super Storm Sandy living in New Jersey.

On Saturday, Nov. 10 from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Monday, November 12 from 5 to 7 p.m., Rotarians will be loading a 26-foot truck at the loading dock between Estey Organ Buildings 3 and 4 (102 and 108 Birge Street) in Brattleboro.

The following items should be brought in labeled boxes if possible: Clothing such as coats, underwear, socks, sweat pants, sweatshirts and sweaters; blankets; towels; bedding and linen; batteries; bottled water; non-perishable food; and grooming supplies.

Rotarians in Paramus, N.J., will unload the truck and distribute to Super Storm Sandy victims.

The Rotary Clubs thanked Dana Lewis of Crofton Movers for donating the truck and driver, as well as Barbara George for the use of her loading dock.
