(IBEW) Members Offer Thanksgiving Help to Hurricane Sandy Victims [View all]
Itís going to be a tough Thanksgiving for the hundreds of thousands of New York and New Jersey residents affected by Hurricane Sandy. Many are entering their third week without power Ė some without a roof over their head.
ďSo many people here are facing tough times,Ē says Third District International Representative Ellen Redmond, who is based in Long Island.
Helping to make sure hurricane-stricken Long Islanders donít miss out on the holiday is Philadelphia Local 98, which donated approximately 300 Thanksgiving dinners to Island Harvest, the regionís largest food bank.
The local called up here and asked what they could do to help. They really wanted to make some kind of contribution to help us out.
