Volunteering in Long Beach!

People are always looking for ways to help.  Rockaways, Long Island, Long Beach, Staten Island, The Jerz, Redhook, Coney Island...  If you have a few extry hours, get out there. Here is an opportunity, pass it on.

Do you have some time to help out this saturday in Long Beach?

Surfrider's Central Long Island Chapter is compiling a list of homes that need help in Long Beach and is organizing volunteers to spread out to those homes to help empty, clean up and assist the homeowners in any way possible.

While may homes have already been emptied by homeowners and scores of volunteers, family and friends, there is still SO much to do - many homes could not be emptied because they were still filled with water, others have owners that are frail and elderly, and no one has been there to assist them yet.

If you have a few hours to spare this Saturday morning, PLEASE come down to Long Beach and help out - all you need to do is show up with gloves, boots, old clothes and a willingness to help, and you will be welcomed with open arms.

Surfrider-Central Long Island will be meeting at 9:30AM in the Magnolia Blvd parking lot on the Reynolds Channel side, near the rec center and ice rink.
The address is : 150 West Bay Drive, Long Beach, NY 11561 (Down Magnolia) at the Rec Center 

Here's a link to the facebook event page:

I'll be there, hope to see you there, too!
