YORKTOWN, N.Y. - Hurricane Sandy beat up Yorktown last week and left thousands without power, but local groups are asking its residents to help out other communities in the tri-state area that were hit even harder.

The Police Benevolent Association and the Shrub Oak Athletic Club will be hosting separate collection drives for the victims of the storm, the Alliance for Safe Kids announced.

For the Shrub Oak Athletic Club, items can be delivered to the Administration Building at 1086 E. Main St. from 6 to 8:30 p.m. Thursday, and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday.

Items being collected are medicine (Tylenol, Advil, Motrin), first-aid kits, antiseptics  face masks, contractor garbage bags, waterproof boots, waterproof gloves, socks, mops, brooms, cleaning supplies, shovels, empty gas cans, snack bars, gift cards, flash lights and batteries.

Any residents looking to help in any way or have a specific person/town in need of these supplies should contact Mike Sancimino at msancimino@3rdangletech.com.

For the Police Benevolent Association, items can be delivered to the K-Mart Parking Lot from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday. Items being collected are water, non-perishable food, batteries, clean up supplies, blankets, baby formula and diapers.
