Westy Self Storage is hosting a donation drive to collect needed items to assist with the cleanup of the oil spill along the Gulf Coast. All 16 Westy locations in the tri-state area are accepting donations.
In addition to collection, Westy will also provide temporary storage for the collected items. The New Jersey Warehousemen and Movers Association has volunteered to transport the donated materials to the Suncoast Seabird Sanctuary, a wild bird hospital and sanctuary. Suncoast will coordinate the distribution of the items along the affected coastal areas.
Desired donations include towels, bottled water, powder detergent, paper towels, toilet paper and heavy-duty trash bags. Donations can be dropped off every day during office hours.
An April 20 explosion on the drilling rig Deepwater Horizon killed 11 employees, and has spilled millions of gallons of oil into the Gulf of Mexico.
