Island Park and parts of Long Beach were a tragic part of the devastation from hurricane Sandy that has been all but ignored by the support channels so dedicated to higher income regions. But this devastation is real, maybe even more real as some of the residents who lost everything have no support, limited means, and no one to rely on.

We have no schools, no day care, one gas station, limited assistance, hardly any public transportation and of course, no power, gas or heat. They are saying our utilities could take 6-8 weeks to be fully restored while neighboring communities are already almost fully restored.

In the spirit of the holidays we are asking for assistance to bring some joy to our forgotten community. Our predicted time table for restoration will ensure that Thanksgiving will leave little to be thankful for and at the full-term of the predictions, Christmas will dismal at best.

This relief will provide some supplementary assistance to the children and elderly who can’t get around or repair their homes, while the bulk will be spent making sure the holidays are something to be remembered.


We will remind the forgotten people of this community that they do matter, and the little things in life like a Thanksgiving meal and giving their child a Christmas present will allow them once again to feel human pride.
