The Town of Oyster Bay has mounds of donated items they hope to distribute Sunday to those in need.
"We have been overwhelmed with the generosity of our community in their donations at Syosset Woodbury Community Park," said Councilwoman Rebecca Alesia, of Plainview, who with Supervisor John Venditto and other town officials helped to organize the drive.
"Our volunteers worked all day and into the night (Saturday) loading much needed clothing and blankets inside for sorting," Alesia said.
On Sunday, volunteers are being asked to bring shopping bags, paper, markers and tape to sort and distribute.
The park distribution will be open until 5 p.m. Volunteers are offering the items to anyone in need of basic comfort items in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.
Alesia also asked residents to spread the word about the distribution.
