East Hampton is rallying behind the community of Breezy Point on Long Island, which was devastated by Hurricane Sandy.
Breezy Point is located in Queens, and thanks to the efforts of Town Supervisor Bill Wilkinson, East Hampton Town Police Chief Eddie Ecker and Montauk resident Dennis O’Reilly, help is on the way.
Dennis O’Reilly, has family in Breezy Point, and was able to organize town officials to take action by getting pickup trucks loaded with supplies to the area. Many have donated and a system of donations is being set up to help. The hope is that other towns will follow.
Hurricane Sandy, for the most part, spared much of her wrath along the East End, but places like Breezy Point have had some of their residents lose their homes.
Stay tuned on how you can help!
