Delaware Port Community Supports 'Sandy' Victims

Press Release
Wednesday, November 14, 2012

Delaware River Port Community schedule a one-day donation drive.

Organizers from private and public sector port businesses and agencies throughout the tri-state region have scheduled a one-day donation drive for Saturday, November 17, 2012, from 8:00am – 5:00pm, to help those affected by Hurricane Sandy.

There are drop-off locations at Philadelphia's Wholesale Produce Market, Gloucester's Marine Terminal, and Wilmington's Chase Center on the Riverfront.

The efforts will support several New Jersey charitable and relief organizations, such as the Salvation Army, and the United Way of Monmouth County.
“We in the Delaware River Valley were extremely lucky that Sandy caused little to no damage in our area,” said Kurt Ferry, of Greenwich Terminals.  “Helping our friends and colleagues is something we felt we needed to do.”

In addition to the three site operators, others donating services to support the event include, but are certainly not limited to, Dole, Hamburg Süd, the International Longshoreman’s Association, and Trinity Distribution Services. 

“The members of our port community have always collaborated on business issues affecting the port.  Now our community is demonstrating its willingness to work together to help people when they need it most,” said Lisa Himber, of the Maritime Exchange for the Delaware River and Bay.

Based on comments from the relief organizations, the group is looking primarily for non-perishable food items, though clothing, toiletries, cleaning supplies and other necessary items are also being accepted.
