Spare to Prepare: Go Bag Supplies Drive
OEM is hosting a collection drive through Tuesday, Sept. 30, to help NYC residents prepare for emergencies with donated Go Bags (a collection of supplies that may be needed during an evacuation packed in an easy-to-carry container).
New Yorkers can donate new/unopened items — including LED flashlights, first-aid kits, plastic rain ponchos, hand sanitizer, whistles, and small battery-operated radios — at one of the following locations:
The items will be added to donated bags, and the completed Go Bags be distributed to NYC families in need during the month of October.
