I am going to bring blankets, clothes, food. God Bless everyone who is suffering through this tragedy.

Just checked the times you'll be there and can't make it then. I've got a couple bags of clothes for you but is there some other time or place I can drop them off?

Great idea!! I just read an article from a couple that went up there to help- they said they desperately need work gloves. They want to clear debris, but very hard without work gloves, need heavy duty garbage bags, and hats and warm coats. They said FEMA was nowhere on the island, and only saw one little red cross truck, so they have no help, no red cross shelters set up, just no help at all!! We will bring some things later today or tomorrow.
