I am proud to partner with Suffolk County Legislator William “Doc” Spencer, Coldwell Banker of Huntington, the Centerport Fire Department and Our Lady Queen of Martyrs Parish in Centerport to help support the families of the recent fire in Centerport .
The fire’s devastating impact, which thanks to the brave efforts of our first responders did not result in any loss of life, really takes its toll of those who are directly affected in the hours, days, weeks and months after.
These residents truly escaped this disaster with only the clothes on their backs and there is so much help and assistance that is needed, especially since there are several young children involved. Regardless of how well someone is insured, the funds typically do not arrive right away despite the dire and immediate need.
Here’s how you can help:
Those who would like to assist in this effort are asked to please donate gift cards from Old Navy, Target, Kmart, Value Drugs, CVS, or any local supermarket, kids or adult clothing stores or gift cards to a local restaurant, pizzeria or fast food. American Express gift cards will also be gladly accepted.
Gift Card donations can be dropped off at any of the four locations below thru Sunday, February 26:
• Huntington Town Hall, “main lobby,” 100 Main Street, Huntington, NY 11743
• Legislator William Spencer’s Office,15 Park Circle, Suite 209, Centerport, NY 11721
• Our Lady Queen of Martyrs Parish, 50 Prospect Street, Centerport, NY 11721
• Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, 82 Main Street, Huntington, NY 11743
We are also planning a fundraiser to take place within the month of February in Greenlawn – date, time and location will be announced soon.
