HOW YOU CAN HELP: If you’re unsure how or where to give to help those devastated by the Oklahoma tornado, the Jersey Shore-based group created to help first responders after Hurricane Sandy is collecting key items for two upcoming deliveries directly to the worst-affected area.
Immediate EMS and Fire Supplies “wants to pay it forward to Oklahoma for all the help we received through Sandy from people and groups across the country,” said Nadine Nicastro Demczyszyn, who, with her husband, Rich, operate the ongoing mercy mission.
Those groups, she said, included the Oklahoma Disaster Relief, “which was here only a few days after Sandy to help us.”
Donations will be accepted through May 26, said the Demczyszyns, both former Bergen County residents who now live in Jackson, NJ.
Deliveries will be made on Thursday and next Tuesday.
– NEW socks / underwear
– baby wipes
– 1st aid kits

– contractor trash bags
– glow sticks
– bug spray
The dropoff point:
