As you are likely aware, hurricane Maria hit Puerto Rico head on. It is up to all of us to help in this time of crisis. NSNP stands strong with Puerto Rico, and we are doing what we are able to assist in various support efforts.

Norris Square Community Alliance will be collecting donations this Saturday, October 7th, from 12 noon to 4pm at Norris Square (2100 N. Howard St., Philadelphia, PA  19122), and some of us from NSNP will be there to support their efforts.

If you have a car or truckload of supplies, please drop them off at the distribution center at 956 East Erie Ave., Philadelphia, PA  19134, and let them know the goods are in the care of Norris Square Neighborhood Project. NSCA and NSNP are joining Unidos Pa' PR's efforts and utilizing their warehouse space. Our space is limited, but the distribution center can take larger donations. The distribution center is open Monday-Friday 9-4, Saturday 9-1. Please use the entrance on "I" Street between Erie Avenue and Venango Street.

Here is the list of items we've been told are needed:

  • feminine hygiene products
  • generators
  • water
  • batteries (sizes C, D, and DD)
  • mosquito repellent
  • powdered milk
  • baby formula
  • Pedialyte
  • Ensure
  • adult and children’s diapers
  • battery operated fans and lights (available at Ikea)
  • plastic gas cans
  • pet food
  • non-perishable food
  • landline (rotary and old push button) phones
  • heavy duty plastic trashbags
  • durable work gloves
  • plastic utensils and cups
  • paper plates

If you are able to make a monetary donation, we are teaming up with some great folks:
