Overstocked On Hurricane Irene Goods? Here's Where To Donate Them

by Christina Makoyawo · August 29, 2011

    New Yorkers are known to be neurotic. So, it isn't a surprise to hear lamenting cries across twitter today on the leftover now useless items (save for the empty whiskey bottles) they stocked up on for Irene. From batteries, flash lights, water, canned soup and blankets, here's some places across the city where you can donate those goods of yours.

    Check out more of the empty shelves across Manhattan HERE and HERE.

    Also, GO HERE for recipes on using your post hurricane leftovers.

    Though we don't want to over-look the apocalyptic struggle that took place across all supermarkets, how awesome would it be if you donated some parts of that over-stocked pantry of yours?
