Assembly Democrats News Release

Vitale & Coughlin Organize Donation Drive, Encourage Donations to Help Middlesex Residents Impacted by Sandy

Lawmakers Also Provide List of Important Contact Info For Residents & Businesses

(19th LEGISLATIVE DISTRICT) - As recovery efforts continue following the devastation left behind by Superstorm Sandy, Senator Joseph Vitale and Assemblyman Craig Coughlin (both D-Middlesex) are conducting a donation drive to help residents of the 19th legislative district affected by the storm pick up the pieces.

"Sandy left a trail of destruction in our midst, but before we can rebuild we must take on the important job helping families hit hardest by the storm," said Vitale. "Many residents may want to help, but just don't know where to start. They can begin by helping us collect the necessities that families coping with the loss of their home need most right now. Their donation will ensure that no one is left in the cold and dark, and that we recover as one community."

"This storm has caused tremendous havoc in our state. My heart goes out to those residents who lost loved ones, and those who lost their homes and must rebuild from scratch. It hasn't been easy, but together, we will get through this," said Coughlin. "I'm asking those residents who were spared the worst of the storm to lend a helping hand in this dire time of need. We'll be collecting non-perishables, diapers, flashlights, toys and other items at our office to help residents hit hardest by the storm get back to some type of normalcy. Let's show our neighbors that they are not in this alone."
