Hoboken Rotary is working with Party with Purpose, The City of Hoboken, and many other local organizations to provide assistance in the Hurricane Sandy Relief Efforts. We have been in touch with the City of Hoboken and area charities to see how we can help. Power may be out for an extended number of days which severely limits the number of open stores. The situation changes constantly so for the latest updates, visit the City of Hoboken website at: www.HobokenNJ.org and on Twitter at: https://twitter.com/cityofhoboken. Many of the local charities who provide after-school programming for some of our more disadvantaged kids have been flooded and will require extensive rehab. Your help and donations are much appreciated. 

Immediate Need: Physicians

We need a few physicians to donate their services to enter the high rises and attend to seniors and others who are in need of new/renewed prescriptions. Since the elevators are out, the residents are unable to go to the pharmacy themselves and most stores are still closed. If you are able to help, please contact us directly. 

To Donate Money: 

Hoboken Rotary  is now accepting monetary donations which will be put to immediate use to help those most in need. Any extra funds will be used for the ongoing recovery efforts. Visit this link to donate (please disable your pop up blocker)

To Donate Goods:

The city is most in need of the following items: blankets, non-perishables such as shelf-stable milk like Parmalat, Canned goods. Diapers. Flashlights with batteries.
