The Morris County Department of Human Services Office of Temporary Assistance is seeking donations of gift cards for those impacted by Hurricane Irene and the subsequent flooding.

Gary Denamen, OTA director, said OTA staff would like to distribute the gift cards to Morris County flood victims who come into the office to seek assistance, especially those who may not be eligible for emergency food stamps or other benefits.

“We are looking for gift cards from stores such as Wal-Mart, Target and local grocery stores,” Denamen said. “Any denomination is welcome, but smaller denominations are preferable so that we can help as many people as possible.”

The gift cards can be mailed to the Office of Temporary Assistance, 340 West Hanover Ave., Morristown, NJ, 07960, or they may be brought directly to the West Hanover Avenue location and dropped off at the front desk.

Additional information may be obtained by calling OTA at 973-326- 7240.
