Winter Arrives Early: Occupy Wall Street Needs...

I'm reposting this in its entirety from the Occupy Wall Street web site:


Urgent: Winter Donation Needs

Posted Oct. 29, 2011, 10:54 p.m. EST by 
It's been dumping snow here in NYC all day, high winds and 3 inches of slush on the ground. With the NYPD and FDNY confiscating six generators on Friday and this unprecedented October snow, those occupying Liberty Plaza in downtown NYC are in need of emergency supplies crucial for cold weather survival (and occupation).
We've made a lot of headway on getting winter gear here in the last 48 hrs but definitely need more. Please help by purchasing or donating supplies directly. Winter gear and other necessities can be dropped off in person, delivered, or shipped.

1) NEEDS
insulated gloves, wool hats, scarveslong underwear / smart wool thermal socks
300 hand warmers, 300 foot warmerswaterproof boots in all sizes
disposable shoe coverswinter coats
hot beveragesthermal heaters
all weather sub-thermal sleeping bagstarps
all-weather tentsfoam padding / insulation for inside of tents
wooden pallets to get tents off the groundcots to get people off the ground (don't currently have any - could really use these)

2) DROPPING OFF IN PERSON IN NYC
Daily until 9pm at the OWS storage space at 52 Broadway Ave, ground floor.
After 9pm at the OWS Comfort Station on the east side of Liberty Square (aka Zuccotti Park)

3) WHERE TO SHIP
