As the recovery from Hurricane Sandy continues, the New York Islanders will host an event on Monday (11/12) to collect food, dry goods, and money to assist the stricken.
Fans will have the unique chance to feel good about lending a hand in assistance, but also the opportunity to skate on the Nassau Coliseum ice.
I would strongly urge all of you who can to take an hour or two out of your day, come to Uniondale, and give whatever you can to assist your neighbors. You'll also make some memories for yourself or your children as they whirl around the same space that John Tavares, Kyle Okposo, and the rest of the Islanders normally occupy. Children's games and food will also be available.
While it might not be the same as attending an Islanders game, it is more important, and you'll feel a lot better about yourself and your community. I will be there with a donation of canned food and a monetary contribution.
The event runs tomorrow from 2 P.M. to 8 P.M. The full details of the event are linked here. I hope to see you there!
