Take opportunity to help Hurricane Sandy victims

info@islandpacket.comDecember 4, 2012 

My sister lives in Belle Harbor, Rockaway, N.Y. After two-and-a-half weeks, we were finally able to talk on a land line, she told me that pictures don't begin to describe the destruction from Hurricane Sandy.

She mentioned that the group Graybeards has been wonderful in helping people. "NBC Nightly News" recently had a report on the organization. If anyone still wants to contribute to the victims of Hurricane Sandy, you can search online for Graybeards, Rockaway, N.Y. and find where to send donations. Any donations will go directly to those in need.
