TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) – Over a month after Hurricane Sandy tore across the east coast, those whose homes were destroyed are still in need. The Toledo Board of Realtors is working to send help.

With the holidays fast-approaching, many people on the east coast still don't have the comforts they did before the hurricane hit. The Toledo Board of Realtors is accepting new and gently used blankets to send to those in need.

Donations can be made at any area major realtor office, Monday through Friday, between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m.

Some of the donated blankets will go to local families in need, as well.

"We're also distributing the other half of our blankets through the Cherry Street Mission and the Salvation Army," John Mangas, president elect of the Toledo Board of Realtors. "It's just a great time of the year to do something special…for the community."

The final day to donate blankets is January 4.
