Ways to Donate to Sandy Victims Locally

Club Fit in Briarcliff Manor and the Pleasantville High School ECHO Club are collecting items.

While Pleasantville and Briarcliff Manor residents certainly felt the effects of Hurricane Sandy a week-and-a-half ago, there are some areas in the tri-state area still reeling from destructive winds and rain.

Since last Monday, several local businesses, individuals and groups have stepped up to help out displaced residents from areas like Queens, Long Island and New Jersey.

Here are a few ways you can still help out. If we missed anything, please let us know in the comments:
