(IBEW) Members Offer Thanksgiving Help to Hurricane Sandy Victims [View all]

Source: IBEW.org

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.

Says Redmond:

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.
