Hurricane Sandy: Staten Island Update November 4, 2012

Yesterday, my wife, volunteers and I delivered supplies collected at the Staten Island Heart Society.
We saw multiple congregations of people throughout the affected areas sharing food, supplies and moral support. There were many moving stories of people who did not previously know each other doing what we do best: help those in need. It was very touching to talk to those whose homes were filled with sea water and had most of their belongings destroyed express sympathy for even less fortunate than themselves.

The Staten Island Heart Society is a local drop off site for relief items for the Staten Island Victims of Hurricane Sandy.

We will be open to accept items daily from 10 AM - 2:00 PM.

 Please contact us via  Facebook https://www.facebook.com/pages/Staten-Island-Heart-Society/91570863813 or through our web site at www.siheart.org  or phone 718.351.3115
if you need to arrange a different time.

Items needed : Clothing, blankets, flashlights, batteries, water, prepared foods, baby foods and pet foods.
Our collection efforts are in conjunction with the SI Boro President's Office and the Stephen Siller Foundation.

Our hearts and prayers are with all of our families and friend's that have been effected by Hurricane Sandy and its aftermath.

Member of the Board of Directors of the Staten Island Heart Society
