Collection of relief supplies underway in NYC for hurricane, earthquake victims

Two business organizations are teaming up in the wake of the two most recent natural disasters.

The NYS Federation of Taxi Drivers and the Bodega Association of the United States are collecting supplies to benefit victims of Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico and this week's earthquake in Mexico. The groups are calling on not only drivers and store owners to contribute, but all members of the community.

Donations of bottled water, non-perishable food and supplies such as diapers can be made at La Marina restaurant, 348 Dyckman Street in Inwood until next Friday. The material will then be shipped.
