In preparation for Hurricane Irene, Senator Jeffrey D. Klein, (D-Bronx/ Westchester), secured and today delivered much needed supplies to vulnerable communities and organizations throughout his district.
The supplies, which included sandbags to help hold back potential flood waters, as well as sleeping bags and water, were donated by Bronx and Westchester businesses.
Even after 10 years, the memory of the sacrifices made our first responders on Sept. 11 remains fresh in our minds. However, it's every day that these brave men and women put their lives on the line to protect our neighborhoods and our loved ones. This picnic is one small way to say thank you for the work, the dedication and the courage they show each and every day.
