The Light-In Group in Westchester, NY recently participated in several activities to help those affected by the recent weather damage and subsequent power outage in the New York and New Jersey area. Although the storm did much more physical damage on the New Jersey shoreline, the area in and around New York City was still impacted and The Light-In Group decided to help out.
The Light-In Group, Inc. President Jason Markman and several other team members made a trip to Staten Island during the weekend after Hurricane Sandy to help distribute food and other necessities to those in need. Even after almost a week without power, many businesses and stores were still closed and the shortage of gas made it difficult to acquire basic needs. “People were cold and anxious to get things back to normal,” said Jason. “It was nice to be able to lend a hand, just as they’d do for us.”
The Light In Group also held a food drive on November 19th to donate to several local pantries and shelters. The event had been planned for some time, but with all of the recent weather activity, the donations were much needed. The Light-In Group is planning on a few more charitable events before the end of the year and any help would be much appreciated!
