The Malverne Civic Association has been going door-to-door throughout the village during the past providing relief to residents who have been without electricity and heat for days in the wake of Hurricane Sandy.
"We've been delivering things like firewood, batteries and flashlights to people who do not have power," Civic President Suzanne Kraemer-Parra explained.
Since last Saturday the number of Malverne homes still in the dark has dropped dramatically, from 3,300 to just over 600 as of this morning. But if you or someone you know is still among those in the village without power and you need food, clothing, supplies, home help or general aid, contact the Malverne Civic Association. Call Suzanne at 516-639-0905 or Kathi at 516-790-8158, or email email@example.com.
"In the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy many, many communities on Long Island were devastated. Homes have been lost, people have been displaced and towns and villages are suffering," the civic stated in a release. "Malverne as a whole was lucky to weather the storm with our community intact, however, that does not mean that many families within our village have not suffered loss in one way or another."
