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.

Any residents looking to help in any way or have a specific person/town in need of these supplies should contact Mike Sancimino at firstname.lastname@example.org.
