The Heights of Collingswood Apartments, in partnership with National Stop the Violence Alliance, Inc., the Philadelphia Soul, and our friends in South Jersey, have set up a central location in South Jersey to collect needed items for victims of Hurricane Sandy. The collection will begin on Monday, December 10, 2012 through Saturday, December 15, 2012. Time: 9:00am to 6:00pm (Monday thru Saturday for one week only). Saturday has been designated “Soul Saturday,” as representatives from the Philadelphia Soul will be present from 12pm—2pm. Saturday is also “Sorority/Fraternity Day,” where Greek organizations are encouraged to participate in this community service event.  

According to New Jersey Governor Chris Christie’s Office on relief efforts, the needed items at this time are household cleaning items only! NO MONEY PLEASE!
