The Port Washington Hurricane Recovery Center at Landmark on Main Street is open Tuesday from 8 a.m.-11 p.m., and will show the election results live on the big screen in the Jean Rimsky theatre.
On Monday, 650 people stopped by the Recovery Center, and the generosity of the community seems to continue.
“We received a large donation of apple juice from Apple & Eve,” said Rob Seiden, a volunteer who is organizing the Recovery Center. “We received all the left over sandwiches from the Manhasset High School shelter. We have received hundreds of coats and other clothing and blankets from residents that we have distributed and will be further distributing to area residents.” Some of the blankets and warm clothing are being sent to the Long Beach area, he added.
Helping out Monday were North Hempstead Councilwoman Dina De Gorgio and her staff including Jennifer Oliva; Supervisor Jon Kaiman and others. Seiden added that Assemblywoman Michelle Schimel continues to lend support.
The center delivered brown bags of a sandwich and fruit for the elementary students at all of the Port Washington elementary schools Monday morning, with Gail Seiden ad Stephanie Roth for spearheading and delivering food.
“We received a gracious thank you from the Interim Superintendent Dr Kathy Mooney,” Seiden said. The center received food donations from Port Washington businesses, including Dunkin Donuts, Finn MacCool’s, Gino's, and Let There Be Bagels.
Visitors to the center can also sign up at for showers at Manhasset Bay Yacht Club. Ask a volunteer at the center for details.
