IMPORTANT NOTICE: (9/19/2005)
Our thanks to all who generously donated supplies for the Katrina
relief. What an amazing response! Our special thanks to Edison Rotary
members, JFK Foundation members, and James Monroe school principal,
teachers, parents & children for their support & efforts to
collect and donate the items.
We were all set to head towards the New Orleans area on September
20th with our moving truck to distribute the supplies but few things
stopped us. One, it was yet another hurricane, Rita, headed towards the
area. But the bigger hurdle was that despite our best efforts to locate a
place where we could go and deliver the items to the needy, we couldn't
find one. All we heard was that ‘it is too dangerous there, lots of
looting', ‘displaced people are not reachable', ‘you won't be able to
deliver directly to those effected', ‘there is too much misuse going
on', etc etc but no clear direction from any one on where to go and
help. So we had to cancel our trip to the area at the last moment.
We will, however, deliver these supplies to the needy families in
Gulf area in the near future; or to those who relocate from the Katrina
effected area to our neighborhood; or to those families who might have
not been effected by such disaster but need these things and can use
We have temporarily suspended our efforts to collect more items for
the time being (atleast till we know that they are needed and how they
can be delivered). We will update this section in 2/3 weeks and let you
know if and when we will begin recollecting.
Thanks again for your generosity.
You can now help knowing that your contributions will be used 100%
for the cause without any management expenses! The devastation caused by
mother nature is not what we see often! The lives of thousands and
thousands of people have been shattered with a blink of an eye!
What can we do to help? That is the question that surrounded us at
our office. Will the funds be used properly? Will the needy get all that
is donated? Here's what we thought was the best we could do while
ensuring that 100% of our collections/donations are used to help those
who need them the most.
All of us at Ontrack Realty have decided to start a collection for
necessities such as toothpaste, brushes, shavers, socks, diapers, under
garments, non perishable foods, water, notebooks and pencils for kids,
or medicines such as: Tylenol, Aspirin, Band Aids etc. We will then take
our Moving Truck and drive to the area that needs help but has not been
attended to for whatever reason (such as media coverage).
We plan to leave around September 20th with a truck full of necessary
supplies. There will be no management costs for this effort. Any and
all expenses such as food, gas, lodging, will be paid for by On Track
Realty. 100% of the donations will get to the those effected by this
Please help those who need it the most. You can drop of your
donations to us at our office or we can arrange to pick them from your
home if you have too many items and you live locally. The items must be
in their original packaging and must be new. Due to space restrictions,
we are not collecting used or new clothes, so please do not drop off any
Our office is conveniently located at 186 Lincoln Highway (Rt. 27) in
Edison. We are minutes away from the Metro Park Train Station, and
right off the Garden State Parkway, exit 131.
Please contact us via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or you may call us at 732-494-2211 if you have any questions.
We thank you for your desire to help. In case you have already donated for the cause, we thank you for that too!
