With many constituents in Willingboro and Delanco lacking power as PSE&G continues its restoration efforts following Hurricane Sandy, Senator Diane Allen is working with local officials to supply food, diapers, baby formula, water and other necessities to those households still in the dark.

Senator Allen was able to secure delivery of these needed items through the National Foundation of Women Legislators, on whose board she serves. The supplies were collected by the Romney/Ryan campaign in Ohio and Wisconsin.

“My thanks to the good people of Ohio and Wisconsin who opened their hearts to those in need in our area. The character of our great nation causes Americans to dig deep and give when disaster strikes,” said Allen (R- Burlington). “The generosity of the Romney campaign in organizing the food drive and sending it our way will be greatly appreciated by the more than a thousand people in Willingboro and Delanco who are still without electricity following last week’s storm. I also want to thank the volunteers in Willingboro, Delanco, and at Universal Motors in Philadelphia who are assisting in loading and transporting the food items this afternoon.”

According to the Office of Emergency Management in Burlington County, those in greatest need in our area are in the towns of Willingboro and Delanco. Senator Allen is working with the Willingboro Police Department and Delanco Mayor Marlene Jass to coordinate delivery of the goods to their residents.

At this writing, nearly 800 households in Willingboro, along with 2 apartment buildings and 60 homes in Delanco, have not had their power restored.

“PSE&G and state officials are doing everything they can to restore power to all New Jerseyans,” Allen continued. “The reality is that full restoration will take longer than we all would like because Hurricane Sandy knocked out electric service to roughly 2 million people statewide. In the interim, the efforts of volunteers across the state and nation are providing at least some measure of comfort to affected New Jerseyans during a very uncomfortable time. My thanks go to all those who are working hard to make things right after this ‘super storm’.”
