Around midnight on Wednesday, Simons posted a note to friends on Facebook (FB ) asking for an array of supplies and volunteers who can speak Spanish. She said she would try to collect money for supplies and groceries from colleagues at Barclays to buy in Manhattan and bring back to Hoboken on Thursday evening.
"Maybe I can send an email out to the floor," Simons said.
A Thursday morning email sent by Simons to colleagues, friends and family outlines which donations Hoboken City Hall says are needed -- emergency blankets, flashlights, bottled water, diapers and formula supplies, to name a few -- and how Hoboken residents can volunteer on food, water and prescription delivery efforts, among many tasks.
