Maspeth, Middle Village & Glendale residents donated tons of supplies, cash and time to the relief effort after Hurricane Sandy. Almost every school and organization in the area participated. Many were turned into drop-off points for donations. The heartwarming effort once again proves how we respond to fellow Americans and New Yorkers in need.
