Pocket Change to Make a Change, an East Meadow organization, is accepting donations for victims of Hurricane Sandy.
Michael Gordon is an East Meadow resident and one of the founders of Pocket Change to Make a Change.
"If people want to make this world a better place, it has to start with us," he said. "We all have things going on in our lives that we have to deal with, but we also have to look out for one another in a natural disaster."
Gordon and his crew volunteered at the Red Cross Shelter in Levittown and drove out to Long Beach this week.
"It looked like i was entering a movie set," he said. "I have never seen anything like this in my many years of volunteering."
Gordon said that donations will go to the residents of Long Beach.
Supplies needed include: Clothing (jackets, socks, coats, gloves, hats for adults and children), toiletries, food (including non-perishable, baby food, dog food and cat food) pillows, blankets, cleaning supplies, diapers, baby wipes, coloring books, crayons, shoes and feminine products.
Pocket Change to Make a Change was started by East Meadow residents, Michael Gordon, Kathleen Bracker and Matthew Dosil in 2011. The organization has volunteered and raised money for natural disasters such as the 2011 tsunami in Japan, Hurricane Katrina and for hurricanes that have hit Florida.
