Tug Promises to Pitch In at Relief Effort

 

Phillies ace relief pitcher Tug McGraw will be on hand at the Delaware County Courthouse in Media from noon to 2 tomorrow to help load a truck with supplies for victims of Italy's devastating earthquake.

 

Helen Passaro, co-chairman of ASIST (Aid Southern Italy Survivors Today) said McGraw promised chairman Carl Mau that he would help with the project to collect clothing and canned goods for shipment to Italy.

 

The round-the-clock collection will run until midnight Wednesday. A truck donated by a local mover will be parked in front of the courthouse on Front Street.

 

 

According to Passaro, the supplies will be taken to Dover Air Force Base Thursday morning for shipment.
