video - SI SANDY RELIEF FUND HELPS 8 MONTH PREGNANT MOM KERI AND HER FAMILY SETTLE INTO THEIR NEW APARTMENT
The New York Post was there to cover it all as Ian, Carolyn and Lee from SI Sandy Relief Fund helped Keri, a Hurricane Sandy victim who is due in early January, her 2-year-old daughter Serafina, and her husband Anthony settle into their new apartment just in time for the holidays. See the video below courtesy of the New York Post. 12/18/2012.
Ian Neckin (our president) along with our charity and the McKeon family were the focal point of a piece on the Channel 11 news last night.
Our organization has sponsored the McKeon family, who lost their home and possessions in the storm. You can find out more about their family and how you can help them at our website http://www.sandyfundsi.org/the-mckeons.html
Many thanks to Erik Maschler and the Battleground Country Club for donating a pick-up truck to Mr. McKeon so that he can back to work and provide for his family. Many thanks to everyone who has made a contribution to help our families.

Ian Neckin, president of the SI Sandy Relief Fund, was one of the first to contact The Post.
Read the whole article here:
We have been overwhelmed by the positive response that we have received and the overall sense of charity people have exhibited. I really want to refrain from naming people specifically (there are simply to many people who have contributed to name them all), but simply wanted to extend special thanks to all of our friends, business partners, families, clients, co-workers and colleagues that have so generously opened their pocketbooks and wallets in the spirit of charity and selflessness. I also want to specifically acknowledge the efforts of all of the volunteers that comprise our team: Ian, Alishia, Suzanne, Nick, Russ, Lee and of course Carolyn for everything they have done and continue to do to help our families get their lives back in order.
PLEASE KEEP GIVING – ALL DONATIONS, NO MATTER HOW SMALL, MAKE A HUGE DIFFERENCE IN THE LIVES OF THE FAMILIES THAT WE ARE HELPING (donate at http://www.sandyfundsi.org)
I wanted to give everyone a sense of where things stand with the organization – we have been at this for a little over 3 weeks now so – we have had our highs and lows as all organizations do as they get going, but I thought I would share a few really great stories and a few successes with the group (of course you can follow most of this on our website and facebook page as well)
