My name is Erin Contino and I'm a Daisy Girl Scout leader from Green, Ohio; troop 91561. My husband, who is originally from Brooklyn, and I are coming to New York with supplies that our troop has donated. What started off with a small group of girls trying to help has turned into a massive donation drive. We now have 2 other Girl Scout leaders who have filled their mini-vans and towed trailers from Uhaul, with donations in order to bring everything we have collected to New York. We also have a chartered tour bus (Martine Tours) doing a day trip to NYC that same weekend and they have agreed to allow us to fill the bottom of the bus with donations as well. We were originally supposed to stay with friends of ours when we came, but that isn't possible any longer because they still have no power. We need some help with lodging, we don't have a lot of money because we are funding this trip ourselves and aren't accepting financial donations because of Girl Scout rules. It's a long drive and we were expecting to have a place to stay when we came. I have no problem with anyone checking us out to make sure we are legitimate.
