As the Patchogue-Medford area recovers from Hurricane Sandy, many local business owners are looking to help out.
Here's a few messages we have received (if you are a business owner with a message for the community, please add it in the comments section below or email details to firstname.lastname@example.org):
Dave Fiorello at Hammond Street Auto: Please notify local residents that we are open today if anyone needs any help. We have 2 tow vehicles available(until we run out of fuel) In most cases it will be free of charge. 631-758-4138
Brian McArdle of Coastal Cabinet Works: I run a wholesale kitchen business in Plainview but live in an apartment in Patchogue (off River Ave.) Having seen first hand how devastating this storm was to everyone in the neighborhood and my community we felt we needed to do something to help everyone. My company will give an additional 20 percent discount to anyone in the Patchogue area that's been affected by this storm and needs kitchen or bath cabinetry. Typically we only deal with contractors but in this case we know we have to reach out to the people that need help. We offer full design and measuring services and want to help my neighbors in any way I can. 516-513-1555
The Tap Room: The Tap Room (at 114 W. Main St. in Patchogue) will be collecting items for families that have lost everything in Hurricane Sandy and will be delivered to parts of the city including Rockaway...if you have any clothes, shovels, gloves, razors, storage containers, canned food etc. to donate please stop down over the weekend and we will get it in the right hands...Thank you!
Rev. Dwight Lee Wolter of the Congregational Church of Patchogue: IT IS VIRTUALLY IMPOSSIBLE TO BUY GAS IN MANY NY AREAS HIT BY HURRICANE SANDY. Many, many people are writing about this on facebook, emails, newspapers and television. And yet I have not seen a single post about conserving gas or becoming less dependent on bio fuels. The WORKERS WITHOUT WHEELS project of the Congregational Church of Patchogue (Long Island) will do what it can to continue to provide FREE bicycles to people lacking other forms of transportation, as it has done for the past two years. Call 631-475-1235 or 631-891-9908.
