Members of the Westchester County Police Department are doing their part to help with the Sandy relief effort.
The county department of public safety and PBA are collecting donations this week that will fill two trucks Saturday and be delivered to parts of southern Queens and Staten Island. Items in specific need include household cleaning supplies, personal care and hygiene items and children's cold medications.
“I would like to thank our county police officers for their outstanding dedication and commitment to the people of Westchester during Hurricane Sandy," Westchester County Executive Robert Astorino said in a statement. "I applaud them for reaching out to help those beyond our borders whose homes and lives were devastated by the storm.”
