The Seaford community has banded together to organize a free Thanksgiving dinner for residents whose homes were damaged by Superstorm Sandy.
The Thanksgiving Day meal is scheduled from 2-5 p.m. at Memorare Council #3476 Knights of Columbus Hall on 2183 Jackson Ave., Seaford. The Nov. 22 feast is being organized by the Seaford Harbor Civic Association in collaboration with the Seaford Chamber of Commerce, Seaford PTA groups and Seaford Wellness Council. Those interested in attending the meal should RSVP to Alice by calling 516-313-2987.
The Seaford Chamber of Commerce is also giving back to the community in the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy with the establishment of a relief fund. Donations to the Seaford Chamber Relief Fund can be sent to P.O. Box 1634 Seaford, NY 11783.
Phil Franco, president of the Seaford Harbor Civic Association, said it is also important that resident check up on neighbors, especially those who are elderly, to see if they are in need. He said many residents who live south of Merrick Road were especially hit hard by the Oct. 29 storm and can use assistance but may be reluctant to come forward asking for help.
