Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano announced today the establishment of a Committee to administer a Nassau Hurricane Recovery Fund to secure donations from the public for the victims of super storm Sandy. The Committee, comprised of six Nassau County Police Department and Volunteer Fire Service Chaplin’s, will establish an account, create an application process and raise funds to assist victims of Hurricane Sandy.
The Committee is chaired by Father Kevin Smith (right), Chaplain for Nassau County’s Volunteer Fire Departments, also includes all Nassau County Police Department Chaplin’s: Father Gerard Gordon (2nd left); Reverend Joseph D’Angelo (left); Rabbi Barry Dov Schwartz; Rabbi Abraham Lefkowitz; and Bishop Robert Harris.
County Executive Mangano stated, “Hurricane Sandy has demonstrated the very best of Nassau citizens, much of our recovery was due to the generosity of neighbors helping neighbors. It is clear that Nassau’s residents will need additional assistance to fully recover. The formation of the Hurricane Recovery Committee will provide an opportunity for neighbors to continue to help neighbors by establishing a fund to assist those in need.”
