The donations to help residents dealing with the impact of Hurricane Sandy are ready for pickup by churches, food pantries, emergency shelter organizations and other groups helping distribute needed supplies.
In just a few hours of announcing the set-up of a donations area, Sweet Frog in Sayville is now striving to get the goods to those who need it.
"We are trying to reach American Red Cross, and other emergency response groups who can get these donated good to the people who need them," said Sweet Frog's Joe Golio.
The donation effort was a collaborative project kicked off by Candance Golio, owner of Sweet Frog, and Stacy Antos, a Sayville resident. Within hours of putting out the news the frozen yogurt store has collected a large amount of donations but doesn't have the ability to do the distribution.
Anyone from a rescue organization or community group helping residents can stop by Sweet Frog before 6 p.m. or call Sweet Frog for more information at 516-817-1071.
