Those interested in bringing donations can take a look at Occupy Boston's list of currently needed supplies. High on the list are walkie talkies, reusable plates and cutlery, warm hats and gloves, food transport materials, blankets, and sleeping bags. On an October 5 blog post, also requested were water, ponchos, legal volunteers, a printer, network router, power strips, tarps, blakets, rice, beans, sugar, and non-dairy milks.

Food and money donations can also be sent directly to Boston's chapter of Food Not Bombs (, which has been feeding the protesters regularly since day one of the occupation.
