Turkish culture in Long Island NY
Sandy Relief Efforts Sandy was one of the most destructive hurricanes in the past couple of decades that hit NY very hard. Most of the cities, especially affluent neighborhoods along the seashores in south Long Island were hit.
The Helping Hands Relief Foundation and the Turkish Cultural Center Long Island have been trying to help with the relief efforts, by serving hot food at shelters where many people had to live and are still living during the past couple of weeks. Volunteers from TCC were working hard to give a hand to whoever needed help. They have been serving food and distributing items at the shelters at Levittown Memorial High School (approximately 300 people), the Welwood district (approximately 300 people and the Nassau Community College Coliseum (over 1000 people).
