Bring in whoopies
As reported in last week’s Review, retired Ephrata High School special education teacher Dee Lynch is mounting an effort to collect items for victims of Hurricane Sandy.
Lynch is hoping residents can drop off boxed Valentine’s Day cards for children to share with their friends; cards of encouragement for victims of this devastating hurricane — many of whom are still dealing with the aftermath; and individually wrapped whoopie pies.
"People in Ephrata really reach out to people in need. After 9-11, the community donated over 1,000 Teddy bears to help comfort people in New York City. After Hurricane Katrina, over 1,000 Teddy bears were collected during the Ephrata Fair to help comfort people that were affected by that disaster," Lynch said.
She’s hoping that the community will once again reach out to people in need. In addition to the cards, her goal is to collect 500 whoopie pies, and although she would prefer if they were individually wrapped, unwrapped ones will also be accepted.
Donations of the boxed Valentine cards, cards of encouragement and the whoopie pies, will be collected from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., February 6-8. Boxes are in the lobby of the Ephrata Review; in the lobby of Blue Ridge Cable, 804 Academy Heights Ave; and OMPH (Our Mother of Perpetual Help), 320 Church Ave. Lynch plans to deliver the donated items to the Salvation Army in Ortley Beach on Feb. 10.
For further information about or to volunteer or donate to this project, contact Dee at 733-7372. More WHOOPIES, page A18
