coat donation

Coats, blankets and miscellaneous items have been collected in Jackson for the victims of Hurricane Sandy and now money is to be raised to help send the truck to the East Coast.  Dan Caruso who organized the event says the generosity of the community has been overwhelming.  He says people havecontributed everything from coats, blankets, clothes and shoes to cleaning and hygiene products to be shipped to the victims.  Furthermore, Caruso says people have also donated other items to be raffled off at an event December first in order to raise money for the transportation of all those goods.  He says prizes include a women’s pair of skis, dinners, a variety of gift certificates, memberships to local gyms, and tickets to the Grand Teton Music Festival.  He says the response from local businesses has been overwhelming.  Caruso says the donated items will be taken to Little Silver, New Jersey which was not hit as hard and so has become a distribution point to other towns nearby which were heavily damaged by the storm.  Caruso says he has been in contact with an organizer there who has been ferrying similar donations into the decimated areas.  The truck is to leave Jackson December second.
