The Valley Patriot newspaper has partnered up with non-profit, House of Mercy, Team Zingales/Century 21, TMF (The Movement Family), and Heat Quest Insulation in Haverhill to provide direct relief for the thousands of people affected by the Columbia Gas Disaster in Lawrence, Andover, and North Andover.
This page is for those who want to donate items or money to network directly with those who have been displaced and are in need. It is a networking page so that we can help pick up items and get them where they need to go.
