What I have found so far... Current Collection Sites for Hurricane Irene Relief!

It's always a bit difficult after a major natural disaster to find out ways to help, as it understandably takes time for those in the affected areas to organize and locate needs, and then, put together collection sites for donations from around the country.  Now that several days have passed since Hurricane Irene caused massive flooding across the Northeast, the needs and donation sites are becoming more clear and numerous.

If you would love to donate some essential items, but don't know where to send them, here are valid donation sites currently asking for supplies:
