have wasted no time in rushing to aid thousands of victims of Hurricane Sandy.
Following are examples of some good works that are being performed throughout Suffolk County:

 

SU 1 – Is  addressing the need for baby items like formula and diapers.  Supplies will be brought to Long Island Cares emergency shelters

SU 3 - The Red Cross is handing out Comfort Kits that SU 3 donated to them. A back-up supply is ready as well.  This service unit is also planning additional support for people in need.
