Occupy Kensington (OK) is continuing to help El Grito de Sunset Park collect items for disaster relief for Puerto Rico and Mexico. Yesterday, OK members drove another carload of donations to the drop-off point in Sunset Park.

Bring the items that you're able to donate to 309 E. 5th Street, just north of Church Avenue in Kensington, and leave them on the front stoop of the house.

Only donate these items:
  • Gas canisters
  • Hand sanitizer
  • Large trash bags
