Aerobridge - Donations
AERObridge (formerly known as C.A.R.E., or Corporate Aviation Responding in Emergencies) is initiating a limited activation in response to Hurricane Sandy. AERObridge is coordinating donated aircraft to bring first response donations to Farmingdale NY (FRG) where they will be picked up and transported via truck to Staten Island and Lower Manhattan to assist 5000 children and disadvantaged families. We are specifically looking for aircraft that can immediately fly in food from Elkhart IN area or Nashville TN to Farmingdale NY. If there are pilots with aircraft that can acquire food, water, winter jackets, batteries and flashlights immediately, we can receive these donations in Farmingdale. Please contact us for clearance as we have PPR approval for humanitarian relief flights. This effort is a very limited aviation response for a maximum of 7 days until mass care donations can be made available. If you can be of assistance either flying donations in or have donations to offer, contact AERObridge President Marianne Stevenson via email at mstevenson@aerobridge.org or visit www.aerobridge.org.

People can drop off donations by Tuesday evening at Cutter Aviation (2802 E. Old Tower Road at Sky Harbor International Airport) or Pinnacle Aviation (14988 N. 78th Way #106 at Scottsdale Municipal Airport).
