Gloucester County DREAM Park Taking Donations for Oklahoma Tornado Relief
(Logan, NJ) – The Gloucester County DREAM Park is being designated to take specific donations for relief to families and horse farms in Oklahoma who recently experienced devastating tornadoes.
Freeholder Director Robert Damminger explained that a trailer has been set up at the DREAM Park for residents to provide needed items for those affected.
“Folks in Gloucester County have a long history of helping those in need,” Damminger said. “Hurricane Sandy is a very recent example of families needing help very close to home. Part of what we do is to help where we can and this is a great example,” stated Damminger.
The Gloucester County Dream Park is helping to coordinate an effort in Gloucester County, and surrounding counties to help bring much needed supplies to residents of distressed community of Moore, Oklahoma.
Starting Monday June 3, 2013 through June 12, 2013 between 9:00 am and 5:00pm, the Gloucester County DREAM Park will be accepting gently used and/or new items for Oklahomans affected by this natural disaster.
Because of this tragedy resources are needed to help families as they begin to rebuild homes and farms. Items such as diapers, baby food, cleaning supplies, horse blankets, vet wrap, horse feed, dog food, and cat food are needed. For a complete list of supplies needed please go to DreamparkNJ.com, or on Facebook at DREAM Park Gloucester County.
“Even though this is disaster was in the middle of the country, it really hits close to home,” said Flossie Ale the DREAM Park Facility Director. “We are a horse complex and a lot of equine people in our area and go to Oklahoma, myself included, at least twice a year,” Ale added. The trailer, transportation costs and time to deliver the much needed supplies are being donated by Brian Ale, Flossie’s son.
“Gloucester County helps where we can,” said Director Damminger. “There is no cost to this initiative and we can hopefully make a real difference in the lives of people, some of whom lost everything,” explained Damminger.
The DREAM Park is located on Route 130 across from High Hill Road in Logan Township.
