Sinatra Dr. still closed; supplies needed
Hoboken 2nd Ward Councilwoman Beth Mason sent out another note early this morning. She left out Rita’s Ice – who graciously donated a box of refreshing Italian Ices to the cause yesterday as well.
We need more refreshments!
“I hope you are enjoying your summer and finding ways to keep cool in this heat wave. First and foremost I would like to again extend my thanks to the many rescue workers who are continuing to aid in the relief efforts after Saturday’s tragic plane and helicopter crash. Also, I would like to extend a big thank you to all the residents who have donated water, Gatorade, ice, and other supplies to the rescue workers.
Yesterday’s donations were warmly received and greatly appreciated. With the weather in the 90s today, emergency workers have expressed that even more supplies would be appreciated.
I ask that you please consider donating more water, Gatorade, and/or ice. The Red Cross will be on hand to accept and distribute the supplies, which can be made at the entrance to Frank Sinatra Drive between 11th and 12th Streets.
Last but not least I would also like to thank Jhoan Gonzalez at the Turning Point restaurant for assisting me in supplying lunch and water to more than 60 rescue workers. Also much thanks and appreciation to Liz Mackay and her team at Starbucks, Gerald Lynch of Kings for the donuts and juice, and Tony Santommuro with Mr. Softy who has offered to assist in serving ice cream on these hot days.
If you have any questions do not hesitate to contact me by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for your time and I look forward to hearing from you,
Second Ward Councilwoman, Beth Mason

Thanks workers – calls for fluid donations
“I would like to inform you that Frank Sinatra Drive is currently closed from 4th – 12th streets while rescue workers continue to aid in the recovery effort of Saturday’s plane and helicopter crash. Recovery workers are currently trying to pull the plane out of the Hudson, as well as recover the bodies of the last two crash victims.
I want to thank the rescue workers for all of their hard work and efforts. Currently there are six recovery boats and numerous divers in the river working to secure the plane. These workers could use donations of water, Gatorade, and/or ice. On Sunday alone, rescue workers went through 20 cases of water. I ask that you please consider donating these supplies. You can drop off your donations at the rescue station located at the entrance to Frank Sinatra Drive between 11th and 12th Streets.
In addition, I would also like to thank Benny Tudino’s for assisting me in supplying lunch and water to the workers yesterday. If you have any questions do not hesitate to contact me by email at email@example.com“
