TLC's Hurricane Sandy Relief

Hurricane-Sandy-Relief2

The Legacy Center and an army of volunteers have been on the ground delivering aid and relief to victims of Hurricane Sandy. TLC has gone into the bay areas most affected by the hurricane: Far Rockaway, Beach Channel, Breezy Point and Coney Island. Teams of TLC are at our warehouse loading trucks with water, boxes of food, buckets of toiletries, hats, gloves, socks and boxes of diapers. We've also opened up the warehouse for anyone affected by the Hurricane who is in need of resources.

Throughout the week we've received donations from other organizations including two 18-wheeler trucks from Gods Pit Crew filled with water, toiletries and all sorts of supplies. To date, we've sent out 7 trucks and 2 vans out filled with supplies. In addition, two trucks were supplied by NYC School safety, which proved to be a huge help, as they delivered supplies to additional neighborhoods. After all was said and done we've been able to meet the needs of hundreds of affected people but we know this is only the beginning as we continue to hear the stories from those affected.

We received much coverage from media outlets such as NY1, ABC, Univision and Star 99.1 for being one of the first responders on the ground. We are thankful about what we've been able to do thus far, but we still need your help. Donations are greatly appreciated. Below is a list of items that have been on high demand. As always volunteers are always needed…it's all hands on deck!
