Citizens on the East Coast are facing winter and the upcoming holidays after being devastated by Hurricane Sandy. The South Shore Fire Department is going to take a trailor to New York and New Jersey on Thanksgiving Day to help provide a list of needed basics.
"We got the idea from another fire department here in Wisconsin and thought it was a great idea," said South Shore fire fighter Jason Caira.
Some of the most needed items include:
- Winter clothing (new or gently used)
- Boots & shoes
- Cleaning supplies
- Paper products
- Pry bars
- Laundry Soap
- Visa gift cards
SSFD is collecting items through Nov. 21 at Sturtevant Village Hall, 2801 89th Street.
