The official nassau county website gives this number to call to find out about local drop off points 88-684-4278... It says it will be working with a private group in assistance... I saw a facebook message about an independent one near uniondale high school... Depending where exactly you live there are some collection spots going on in with the Haitian communities in Cambria Heights, Springfield Gardens, and Brooklyn..

Don't donate stuff, donate money. They need water, food, and tents and medical supples. What could individual people possably donate to people who have nothing and are dying in the streets. Your couple of cans of beans or a case of water that gets there around the end of February is not going to do a damn bit of good.
