Saturday we will be collecting at the Triangle Road Football Complex from 9am to 3pm.

 We are looking for a truck(s) to bring all the items to the Seaside area late Saturday or first thing Sunday morning. If we can have transportation Saturday to load that would be great. Please do what you can as we all realize this is a difficult time for many Please contact Krysta directly at 908-625-6873 or you can email Bob at hfl@jrraiders.org with any questions.
