Binghamton Salvation Army Accepting Hurricane Relief Supplies

Bob Joseph/WNBF News

The Salvation Army in downtown Binghamton is collecting cleaning supplies and snacks to be delivered to those affected by Hurricane Sandy.

Major Ronald Heimbrock, the local commanding officer, said area residents already have made financial donations to assist those in communities that were devastated by the storm.

Now that logistics have been worked out, Heimbrock said the Salvation Army is encouraging people to give certain items that are in great demand.

Speaking on WNBF Radio’s Binghamton Now program, Heimbrock said the goal is to fill a truck that’s located next to the Salvation Army site on Washington Street in Binghamton.

Heimbrock said only new items are being collected. Among the things needed are work gloves, masks and cleaning supplies. Paper towels, toilet paper, laundry soap, granola bars and other snacks also are being sought. Brooms, diapers, school supplies, bleach and backpacks also would be helpful.

The collection at the Binghamton Salvation Army will run from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily through Saturday.
