New Yorkers Encouraged to Donate for Hurricane Relief

Mayor de Blasio today announced 18 firehouses and EMS stations across the five boroughs where New Yorkers can donate critically-needed items for Hurricane Maria relief.

“New York City stands in solidarity with those affected by Hurricane Maria, and many of us are looking for ways to help. We’re encouraging New Yorkers to donate these critically-needed items at a local drop-off site,” said Mayor Bill de Blasio.

The City encourages donation of items that are critically needed for recovery. These items will be delivered to families directly affected by the storm. Below is a list of items New York City is collecting to send to those affected by Hurricane Maria:

  • Diapers
  • Baby food
  • Batteries
  • First Aid Supplies
  • Feminine Hygiene Products

Please note the City is only collecting the items listed above. All donated items must be nonperishable, not second-hand, nor contain any liquids of any kind. Open or unsealed donations of food or hygiene supplies will not be accepted. Wet wipes will also not be accepted. Any other items will be kindly returned.

There are 18 drop off locations accepting donations across all five boroughs. Donations will be accepted during the hours of 7 am – 9 pm. Please be aware that FDNY members at these locations may not be present during drop-off hours if they are responding to an emergency.
