Nana Sophie Gathers Support and Supplies for Hurricane Sandy Victims - Get Involved!

I love it when ordinary people do extraordinary things! Hurricane Sandy has brought us many heart rending stories of survival and rebuilding. Now a local celebrity and her family are gathering supplies and items for the hard hit folks of Staten Island, NY. 

I speak of Chesapeake City's own Nana Sophie Ferrara, who spent her 102nd year becoming the Nation's Nana and gathering more than 5,000 Facebook friends. For her 103rd birthday in October she was featured on a New York morning show (she's from Staten Island), and now she's gathering clothes, wipes, toiletries, shoes, blankets, diapers and more to send to her hometown. 

Sophie's granddaughter, Diane Scuderi, will be making as many trips as are needed to transport necessities to NY. Diane asks that everything be neatly placed in boxes or bags and dropped off at her home at 119 Manor Circle, Elkton MD.  Her number is 302 593 2016 if you need to coordinate things with her.  Please be respectful, and only call during daytime hours!

Let's pull together, Mid Shore, and help Nana help others! Contact your churches, civic groups, youth groups, etc. and get people collecting needed items! I know gas cans are in desperately short supply - Wal-Mart is selling out daily to folks driving south to find supplies. 

I know we all want to help but don't always know how.  We can do this! 

Let's work with Nana Sophie and make a difference! 

PS - I can help bring supplies from the lower counties to Cecil - email me! cyndi@midshorelife.com
