This release was submitted by ALJ.
The Arthur L. Johnson community launched a joint effort in providing aid to all of those affected by Hurricane Sandy. The ALJ Student Council is organizing this relief effort with the support of the Key Club. Over the next week, a blood drive, food and clothing drive will take place at Arthur L. Johnson High School. We are looking for the entire community to help donate to those affected by the storm.
Information on how you can help is listed below:
On Wednesday, November 14th students can donate blood from 9:00am – 3:00pm during their Physical Education class. 16 year old donors need to have a parent consent form. The forms can be found on the ALJ website, alj.clarkschools.org or bloodnj.org.
In addition, hours will be extended until 7:00pm for members of the community. The Blood Center of NJ is asking for your donation due to the emergency blood shortage throughout the state.
Food and Clothing Drive
Collection boxes have been placed around the school and in classrooms (a list of needed items is below). Any donations from the community are greatly appreciated and can be dropped off at ALJ during the week or at the entrance of the Blood Drive on Wednesday, November 14th.
We thank you for your support, generosity, and service.
Supplies in need:
non-perishable food items (no glass jars)
toiletries (toothpaste, toothbrushes, soap, shampoo, etc.)
baby items (diapers, formula, etc.)
paper goods (paper towels, napkins, plates, etc.)
warm clothing, towels and blankets
