Joseph Casario, who owns Edwards Dowdle Funeral Home in Dobbs Ferry is holding an event this Sunday at the Funeral Home seeking supplies for the best friends of humans. Shelters are in desperate need of supplies. Please help if you can. Below the announcement I listed some other ways you can help the victims. The recommendations came from Volunteer New York and the USA TODAY network.
