This weekend marks the last Jersey Shore farmers market of the year. To send off the season right, Brigantine’s farmers market accepts Hurricane Harvey donations. Everything collected directly benefits the people affected by Hurricane Harvey.
Jersey Shore Farmers Market – Hurricane Harvey Donations
It’s been five years since Hurricane Sandy. And we’re still dealing with its aftermath today. So who better than Jersey Shore residents to understand the devastation something like Hurricane Harvey created?
Ventnor City already accepted donations for Hurricane Harvey victims at their last market of the season today. If you missed that, visit Brigantine’s farmers market on Saturday, September 2nd. Between 8:30am and 12pm, they’ll accept any aid you wish to provide.
What is Needed
- Non-perishable food items
- Diapers (adult and infant)
- Dog and cat food
- Pet bowls
- Bottled water
- Feminine hygiene products
- Clothing (larger sizes are always appreciated)
- Blankets, sleeping bags
- Story books or coloring books with crayons
- Board games, cards, etc.
Remember, many people are without power right now. If you donate canned food items, please make sure they are easily opened. Otherwise, you may want to include a few hand powered can openers with your donation.
