Bring Thanksgiving to Far Rockaway

Operation SurfinBird

The Rockaways have been devastated by hurricane Sandy. Many are without homes, those that have homes still have no power, and many have lost everything. As we approach winter, the damage to homes, schools, roads and infrastructure is still tremendous, the efforts to rebuild are becoming more challenging, and support from official sources is dwindling. We are Operation SurfinBird. New Yorkers, surfers, people that visit Rockaway, a group of friends that has seen the devastation of Sandy and is unwilling to stand by and wait for things to get better. We want to bring a home cooked Thanksgiving meal to the members of the community in Far Rockaway, one of the poorest and most hardly hit neighboorhoods of the NY metro area. We aim to raise awareness on their long-lasting needs and to give them a plesant break after what for many has been a very very hard month. We are aware of the challenges and that is why we are reaching out to you. We hope you can join us.
