Malverne Students, Faculty Help Hurricane Sandy Victims

High School Student Council collects food and supplies for families impacted by Superstorm.

Immediately upon returning to school earlier this month following Superstorm Storm, members of Malverne High School’s Student Council organized a food drive to benefit those affected by the hurricane.

Wanting to do as much as they could for their neighbors in need, the entire staff and student body have been collecting non-perishable food items, toiletries and reusable bags to donate to the cause. For now, the collection is intended to be ongoing and the student council is currently coordinating a fundraiser to benefit local East Rockaway hurricane victims.

 Pictured with student council advisor Kim Rossi are student council members: seniors Emmanuel Adeyeye, Brianna Michael, Deja Mitchell, Amanda Witowski and Emily Valentino; juniors Kyle Jackson, Kayisha Ulysse and Tiffany Nagasawa; and sophomores Nick St. John, Sydney Witowski and Melani Montgomery.

Everyone, please write Town of Hempstead Supervisor Kate Murray at katemurray@tohmail.org and ask her to donate 75% of the General Services Postage budget (of $2.4 million dollars) to help the victims of Hurricane Sandy, or JUST FORWARD THIS message to katemurray@tohmail.org. Kate Murray currently sends out about 25 mailings per year. See http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nzq67LIQ3dw for more information about Kate's mailings. Ask her to give up some of her mailings to help residents that were devastated by Hurricane Sandy. Instead of cutting down trees to make paper for mailings, the Town of Hempstead should use that wood to make houses for the people that lost theirs. Please forward this message to everyone you know. Thanks, Felix Procacci

2.4 million on junk mail! Wow - what an incredible waste of taxpayer money! Spend it on Sandy relief this year - then redistribute it to other programs from that point forward!!!
