Hurricane Sandy

A small gesture can mean so much to someone else.

A couple weeks ago, the area in which we live was hit by something that we have never seen before.  A hurricane that caused more destruction than we could ever imagine.  Many people are still dealing and adjusting to the aftermath (some are still without power), while others are grasping the enormity of the situation, and trying to pick up the pieces after they lost everything.  It is at this time were community is everything, and coming together to help others is of the utmost importance.  Here is a listing of ways that you can get involved, and help those in need during this very trying time.
