Judge Roy Tepper was among the many local officials and residents who turned out to support the community.

The Long Beach community pulled together on Thursday to host a Thanksgiving feast for residents affected by Hurricane Sandy.

Hundreds of people turned out to the city’s Ice Arena on West Bay Drive where Swingbelly’s BBQ and others prepared more than 200 turkeys and served Thanksgiving meals in large tents.

Swingbelly’s, the popular West End barbecue restaurant, teamed up with the Long Beach Surfer’s Association, Skudin Surf and the non-profit organization Surf for All, among others, to launch an “emergency relief” effort to provide Thanksgiving dinners for at least 100 Long Beach families.

Everyone, please write Town of Hempstead Supervisor Kate Murray at katemurray@tohmail.org and ask her to donate 75% of the General Services Postage budget (of $2.4 million dollars) to help the victims of Hurricane Sandy, or JUST FORWARD THIS message to katemurray@tohmail.org.

Kate Murray currently sends out about 25 mailings per year. See http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nzq67LIQ3dw for more information about Kate's mailings.

Ask her to give up some of her mailings to help the residents of the Town of Hempstead that were devastated by Hurricane Sandy.

Instead of cutting down trees to make paper for mailings, the Town of Hempstead should use that wood to make houses for the people that lost theirs. Please forward this message to everyone you know.
