Fifth Grade Collecting Donations for Occupy Sandy Relief
December 3–14, 2012

We have learned in our fifth grade Systems Unit that a system is a group of organized parts that work together to reach an ultimate goal or outcome. If any part of the system is changed, the nature of the outcome will also change. We noticed that Hurricane Sandy has affected many systems in New York and New Jersey, including heating systems, water systems, businesses, family units, and transportation. Families do not have a place to call home and businesses are broken. People cannot support their families!  

There are many who want to help and donate items but don't know how or who to contact. Well, Ms. Brook's class is here to help! We are collecting items from December 3 - December 14, 2012 to support the Occupy Sandy organization. Occupy Sandy is a volunteer-based organization helping the neighborhoods and people who are affected by Hurricane Sandy. For more information on Occupy Sandy you can visit their Web site at interoccupy.net.

Items needed:
Bottled water
Non-perishable food
Contractor garbage bags
Cleaning supplies (sponges, laundry soap, dish soap, vinegar, hydrogen peroxide, Mold-X)
Tyvek worksuits
Rubber work gloves
P100 particle respirator masks
Toilet paper
Industrial mop buckets
String mops
Push brooms

Donations may be dropped off from December 3-14, during school hours.

It is our goal to take these items up to the main New York Distribution Center in Brooklyn, New York, on December 15th, 2012.

If you would like more information, please contact us at brook.graves@sevengen.org.

Thank you for your help!
