Debra is a long-standing volunteer of Long Island Cares, but she and her family found themselves nearly destitute after Superstorm Sandy ravaged their home on the south shore. Long Island Cares’ Emergency Response and Recovery Program was able to assist her directly with supplies and resources to help her rebuild her family home. It is volunteers like Debra who help make our programs successful, and it is our privilege to be able to help her remain in her community. She continues to donate her time and is very appreciative of the help she received. She continues to advocate for those in need, and reminds clients she assists in the pantry who may be embarrassed to be there that she is a perfect example that hunger and catastrophe do not discriminate.
