Local Fire Departments Collecting Goods for Sandy Victims
Drop off food, blankets and clothing at the Erial, Lambs Terrace or Chews Landing fire stations.
The Chews Landing, Erial and Lambs Terrace fire departments are seeking the public's help getting much-needed food, clothing, and supplies to the victims of last week's Superstorm Sandy.
Erial Fire Department and Lambs Terrace Fire Co. are working together as part of a countywide effort to collect items for Sandy victims. That effort has already resulted in a shipment to support 200 displaced North Jersey residents who are currently staying in motels in North Wildwood, according to Erial firefighter Steve Schwegel.

Supplies for Sandy victims can be dropped off at the Lambs Terrace Fire Co. station house, at 1781 Sicklerville Road, 24 hours a day.
Chews Landing Fire Department is also collecting good to aid Sandy victims. Donations can be dropped off at the Chews Landing station house, at 43 Somerdale Road, from 6 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more information, call 856-227-5907.
Among some of the more pressing needs for Sandy victims are blankets, jackets and coats, bleach and cleaning supplies, flashlights, batteries, non-perishable food items and gift cards for grocery stores, Schwegel said.
