Assemblyman Ed Ra Collects Supplies For Hurricane Sandy Victims

In response to the urgent call for help, Assemblyman Ed Ra is hosting a “Hurricane Sandy Supply Donation Drive” to help those who were hardest hit on Long Island by Hurricane Sandy.

“Hurricane Sandy has affected all of the residents of Long Island in different ways. In true New Yorker fashion, we have come together to help those who were hardest hit and will continue doing so in the months to come,” said Assemblyman Ra.

All donations may be sent or dropped off at Assemblyman Ed Ra’s District Office located at 925 Hempstead Turnpike, Room 350 on the third floor in Franklin Square. The office is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
