      Dear Wayland Voter,

      A Wayland group is collecting a wide variety of items already identified as needed at Breezy Point, NY, where residents -- many of them police officers, fire fighters and EMTs -- lost their homes to flooding and fire last week. News about Breezy Point:

      The following notice is from Friends of Breezy Point, coordinated by Cynthia Hill (508-358-5695).

      Next Tuesday, a 40-foot truck, courtesy of the new Wayland Stop & Shop, will leave from the Town Center with light construction equipment, winter clothing, non-perishable food, and pallets of drinking water.

      We need the following delivered to the truck Friday, Saturday and Sunday of this week. The truck will be parked at the Stop & Shop in Town Center, reachable by the Route 20 entrance from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily.

      NEEDED:

      Space Heaters

      Hoses - various lengths

      Cordless Screw guns

      Wheelbarrows

      Generators

      Electric Cords - 50 & 100' lengths

      Winter clothing for all ages, male and female: warm socks, jackets, parkas, boots, sweaters, slacks, packaged undies, scarves, gloves, mittens, etc. (Just think of what you'd need if suddenly you had nothing.)
