We are focusing our efforts on helping the FDNY members reach out to those families that have lost their personal homes and belongings, EVERYTHING, following Hurricane Sandy in the New York area. Many live in the destroyed areas that you have seen on the news, such as Rockaway, Breezy Point, and Staten Island. Check out the below interview with Katie Couric:
