Donations will be accepted through Sunday at the Wayland Stop & Shop.
It took only five hours to fill a 40-foot Stop & Shop truck full of donations for victims of Hurricane Sandy in Breezy Point, N.Y. "I am overwhelmed by people's generosity," said Cynthia Hill, who spearheaded the effort and worked with the Wayland Town Center location of Stop & Shop to secure the truck, driver, gas and workers to pack the truck. From 10 a.m.-3 p.m. on Friday, residents from Wayland, Sudbury, Weston, Hudson and other locations dropped off clothing, food, tools, cleaning supplies and more.

The clothing has already poured in, but the need for construction equipment and tools remains great.
Breezy Point Project organizer Cynthia Hill said Thursday the donations of clothing have already come pouring in for the truck that will leave from the Wayland Town Center Stop & Shop with donations for Hurricane Sandy victims. What she really needs, Hill said, are the construction and clean-up items below (those with an asktrisk are especially important): Hill is working with the as-yet-unopened Stop & Shop location at Wayland Town Center to collect items for the Queens, N.Y., neighborhood of Breezy Point, which suffered terrible devastation during Hurricane Sandy in the form of both flood and fire. Stop & Shop is donating a 40-foot truck, the driver, gas and help to load the truck, but donations are needed. Hill said that several …
A truck parked at the Wayland Town Center Stop & Shop through Sunday will carry donations to Breezy Point, N.Y., an area devastated by flood and fire during Hurricane Sandy.
It's been about 10 days since Hurricane Sandy ripped through sections of New York and New Jersey, gashing the landscape and leaving behind wounds that will heal, but with scars. In Wayland and Sudbury, power lines and trees bore the brunt of Sandy's wrath, but those small inconveniences pale in comparison when the images of locations in Sandy's direct path cross television screens and magazines. Wayland resident Cynthia Hill on Sunday night watched a segment of "60 Minutes" focused on the section of Queens, N.Y., known as Breezy Point. It's a community that Hill first encountered after 9/11, when Hill and her husband, David, traveled to a fire station in New York to meet some of the firefighters who lost colleagues the day of the attacks. …

It's been said it's far better to have a neighbor who's near, than a brother who's far away. But in the wake of Hurricane Sandy, Americans across the nation have proven to be both the best of neighbors and the strongest of families. This past weekend, AOL and Patch employees took an opportunity to pitch in, packing two tractor trailers worth of food, water and supplies in Dulles, VA, and Baltimore. The donations are headed to Hurricane Sandy-ravaged areas in New Jersey and Long Island. Want to join the relief efforts?
