Locals collect supplies for storm victims in NY and NJ


Friends and strangers have already sent down one truckload of supplies for residents in Rockaway, and Davis is continuing to collect items. Cranney Home Services has offered to take any further supplies she collects to the New York area.

“As long as I can get transportation, I’m going to keep doing it,” Davis said.

Another small relief effort leaving for the New York/New Jersey area tomorrow is called the Relief Road Trip, which is being organized by Molly Ferris of Danvers, Emma Sauvageau of Peabody and others. Sauvageau, a counselor, and Ferris, a program manager, work together at the Shore Education Collaborative in Peabody. Through donations from preschools and doctor’s offices, the women have enough donations to fill a minivan, and they are no longer accepting items. The women plan to blog about their trip on Facebook. You can find their page by searching under the title “The Relief Road Trip.”

Another Sandy relief effort is scheduled for Nov. 24 by classmates and friends of Sue O’Grady, a member of the Danvers High Class of 1989, whose family was displaced from their home in Bernardsville, N.J. The event will be at the Roadhouse Pub, 55 Pulaski St., Peabody, from 7 p.m. to closing. For more information, contact Jennifer (L’Italien) Carroca at 978-869-1448 or
