The Greater Lawrence Christian Men's Assn. needs volunteer assistance to coordinate, collect and deliver donated goods to victims of the Boardwalk Apartments fire.

Items needed include computer equipment and supplies; microwave ovens; small furniture including desks, tables, chairs, small couches, lamps and beds; other household items; and cookware.
