Hurricane Sandy Relief Efforts


As Long Islanders recover from the effects of Hurricane Sandy, we are hoping that you will join with us and other CRU families to continue helping families in need.

Camps ‘R’ Us has already donated food and clothing items, blankets and funds to the American Red Cross working on Long Island, and we need your help to do more! If you are interested in helping with the relief effort, please contact us.

Camps ‘R’ Us is collecting donations for the American Red Cross.
Our main office (41 Heisser Lane, Farmingdale) will be open for dropping-off donations, food, clothing, water and other charitable items beginning Thursday, November 8th, from 9 AM to 5 PM.

From our friends at CRU Northport… Former Voyager Joe Waldeck and his family are running a food drive in Northport for Island Harvest. They are asking friends and neighbors to drop off non-perishable foods, baby food/formula/diapers, and personal hygiene items at 18 Goldenrod Ave., Northport (off of Norwood Ave., behind Ocean Ave. School). The donations will benefit storm victims.

If you have begun a relief project in your neighborhood, please let us know how we can help. If you are in need of assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Thank you!

    CRU main office closed Thursday, Nov. 8th due to the winter storm. We will let everyone know when we reopen. Best wishes to everyone affected by the storm(s). Our thoughts are with you.

    Due to the melting snow and already overused drains, our offices and warehouse sustained significant water damage. Unfortunately, this location has become unsafe for the storage of donated items. Our Sandy relief efforts have been put on hold temporarily as a result.

    If you wish to continue the relief effort, please visit one of our host parishes, each of which is collecting donations for the relief effort.

    St. Christopher – Baldwin
    St. Barnabas – Bellmore
    Holy Family – Hicksville
    St. Philip Neri – Northport
    Holy Name of Mary – Valley Stream

    Thanks for your patience as we work to resolve this issue.
