Gifts Needed from the Western Shore to the Eastern Shore

Relief Effort Donations Needed 
in Time for the Holidays

Hollywood, MD – Burch Oil is coordinating a Hurricane Sandy Relief Effort for our neighbors in Crisfield, Maryland in time for the holidays. The truck is scheduled to head over to the Eastern Shore on Wednesday, December 19, 2012. Having taken quite a hit during the late October superstorm, the community finds itself in serious disrepair and in need of help.
“We recently learned of Crisfield’s troubles through social media,” stated Sheri Burch Norris, Burch Oil’s Director of Marketing. “And when it was brought to our attention, we knew we needed to do something for our Maryland neighbors. We are hoping the Southern Maryland community will make much-needed contributions and donations.”
According to Crisfield Mayor Jay Purnell, the most needed items for distribution to the Crisfield community during this holiday season are non-perishable foods, diapers, wipes, and new toys. The public may drop off contributions to the Burch Oil office at 24660 Three Notch Road in Hollywood during regular business hours (Monday through Friday, between 7:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.) prior to Wednesday, December 19, 2012.
Many homes and businesses were destroyed due to severe water damage. Mayor Purnell requested that monetary contributions to cover the costs of “desperately needed building materials” be mailed directly to:

City of Crisfield
319 West Main Street
Crisfield, MD 21817
(in memo, please indicate: "for relief effort")
