Dear Friend,

Hurricane Dean hit Jamaica on Sunday August 19, 2007. The storm has caused severe damages, the level of which is still being assessed. As a result, the government has declared an island wide State Of Emergency to ensure the safety of its citizens. There are many blocked roads including highways which will undoubtedly make traveling difficult over the next few days.

Like many Jamaican expatriates the Jamaican Diaspora, Northeast United States Chapter share the concern of our brothers and sisters back home as they face the challenge of returning to normalcy after the devastation of this horrific storm. Accordingly, we are supporting local Office of Disaster Preparedness and Emergency Management (ODPEM) in what will certainly be difficult recovery efforts by mobilizing our resources to secure the following items:
– Twin Mattresses, Sheets & Blankets
– Flashlights and Batteries
– Tarpaulins
– Water Tables (water purification kits)
– Baby food and Diapers
– Canned foods (example: Corned Beef, Sardines, and Canned Mackerel)

School Supplies:
– Spiral notebooks
– Loose leaf paper
– Rulers
– Pencil sharpeners
– Pencils
– Erasers
– Crayons
– Backpacks
– Socks: Dark Blue, White, and Brown
