United Caribbean American Network of New Jersey – Hurricane Dean

Spread the love

Dear Friend:

Hurricane Dean is forecasted to impact Jamaica on Sunday August 19, 2007. The U.S. National Weather Service (NWS) predicts that at the time it reaches the island, Dean will have intensified to a Category 5 storm. The NWS has also reported that at 11 AM today the Government of Jamaica issued an island-wide hurricane warning. In preparation, the local Office of Disaster Preparedness and Emergency Management have advised people along the coast or in low-lying areas to make plans for heading to higher ground. In anticipation of the devastation that can be caused by this hurricane we are mobilizing our resources to stockpile 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, Canned Mackerel)

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

The United Caribbean American Network of New Jersey (UCAN-NJ), a non-for-profit organization, has begun preparation to support local disaster relief agencies on the island in what will certainly be a difficult post-storm rebuilding period. Consequently, we are asking for your donation and support. On request we will be happy to provide our tax exemption number to facilitate your donation. We sincerely hope this is an effort you will consider worthy of your time and consideration. If you have any questions, I can be reached on 732-331-2768. I look forward to hearing from you.

Kindest regards,
Hon. Elsie Foster-Dublin
President: UCAN_NJ
