A Chance To Say 'Thank You'

Patch gives local residents the opportunity to thank someone for helping them during Hurricane Sandy.

It has been more than two weeks since Hurricane Sandy impacted the lives of all Long Islanders.

From horrific flood damage of entire neighborhoods, to wide spread power outages and gas lines, the historic storm changed how many residents live.

But through the challenges presented by Sandy, families, friends and entire communities rallied around each other sharing homes and hot meals while donating an untold amount of clothing, food and money to those most in need.

As we approach Thanksgiving and the holiday season, Patch wants to give readers an opportunity to publicly thank those who help them navigate the rough waters that Sandy brought ashore.

In our comment section below, please list whom you would like to thank. We’re asking our readers to keep comments to the positive as we saw first hand people rallying to help others in their community.

I'd like to thank the Rochester NY FD for pumping my flooded crawlspace. The guys were given a nice donation and a few bottles of wine to enjoy when they got back to the Sayville FD. My sister, Carol, who gave me a nice warm bedroom and quite a few hot meals...love her!!! Calls from all friends and relatives just checking in on us were so very nice.
