Ellen,So many families were affected by hurricane Sandy and I know many are seeking help in your direction. Everyone has a story and everyone needs some sort of help but I am hoping that this email stands out.
My niece got married this past June, 2012. Her in-laws lived on Breezy Point, Long Island Queens NY. It wasn't enough that Hurricane Sandy flooded 3 of her in laws homes, and business, one home burnt entirely to the ground.
Fire rescue crews could not get through the flood waters to distinguish the fire and 100 homes over the span of 4 blocks burnt to the ground. These families are left with Nothing but despair and memories of their homes and neighborhood.
I am asking you for some type of help for this family and their neighborhood. Their last name is Strong, and believe me, it is more than a name! They are fighting to get back on their feet and any help or donations are welcome.
My niece created a website for donations on Deposit a Gift, however, I don't think that will be enough: Hurricanerecovery.mydagsite.com
Please consider the Strong Family and other families from this area.
In advance, thank you for your time and consideration,
