Helping Victims of Hurricane Sandy

Here’s what our Founder Rich DiGirolamo is doing tomorrow. If you’re in CT and can stop by, please do.


From Rich’s website:

When I decided I wanted to fill a bus with supplies for the victims of Hurricane Sandy, I turned to a company I have had the privilege to work with but more importantly a company which believes in doing good and putting people first!

I’m working with the folks at DATTCO to help fill a bus with relief supplies for those impacted by Hurricane Sandy in the NYC area. We are working with Catholic Charities in Queens, NY to get those supplies to those who still most need them.

We need your help!

On Thursday November 8th there will be a DATTCO bus collecting relief donations in the parking lot at the following three locations:

Help us fill this bus with supplies for Victims of Hurricane Sandy

  • Newington CT 7:30-8:30 AM Stop & Shop Plaza, Berlin Tpke
  • Southbury CT 10:00 -11:15 AM Kmart/Stop & Shop Plaza, Exit 15 Rte 84
  • Danbury CT 12:30 – 1:45 PM Walmart, Newtown Rd


Here’s what is needed:

  • FOOD (canned goods, coffee, pasta, bread & sandwich materials, snacks for kids)
  • Water
  • Flashlights and batteries (AA, AAA, D)
  • Hand sanitizer, towels, toilet paper, toiletries (toothbrushes, toothpaste, shampoo, soap, feminine products, etc.),
  • Baby items (diapers, wipes)
  • First aid kits
  • Hats, gloves, blankets, coats

Clothes (shirts, pants, etc) are NOT needed.

Tell everyone you know to come by. I’ll be there with a team from DATTCO.

Thanks Don DeVivo and the entire DATTCO team who are making this possible and didn’t think twice when I approached them with this idea!
