"BELLEieve" in Belle Harbor
On a peninsula of Long Island, just miles outside Manhattan, are the seaside towns known as “the Rockaways.” Belle Harbor is one of those communities and it was destroyed by the wrath of Hurricane Sandy.This is a community that has weathered many tragic events in recent years. A community of firefighters and “first responders,” Belle Harbor families lost over 40 men and women on September 11, 2001. Just two months later, the community saw more destruction firsthand when American Airlines Flight 587 crashed in Belle Harbor.
Now, in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, hundreds of homes have been demolished and the families there are struggling to rebuild as winter approaches. By purchasing a shirt, making a donation or volunteering your time with Believe in Belle Harbor, you can make an immediate difference in the lives of the Belle Harbor families who have already given so much to New York and to the country.
"Believe in Belle Harbor" started out as help for the Roberts family but has grown to a general relief effort for this special community. All proceeds from the sale of the shirt will to purchase supplies and assist with rebuilding.
