Southern Connecticut Hebrew Academy collecting items to help Hurricane Sandy victims

The collection runs through Nov. 16

ORANGE - Southern Connecticut Hebrew Academy and Beth Chana Academy High School have joined forces to help the recovery efforts for those who were devastated by Hurricane Sandy, officials said in a statement.

These items will be collected through Nov. 16: Toys, books and art supplies (these will be given to a preschool in New York affected by the storm), paper towels, tissues, cleaning supplies, towels, blankets, canned foods and non-perishable food items.
