Thanks to a generous donation by Home Depot, I was able to deliver 250 free flashlights to Pelham residents who are still coping with power outages. Alongside local elected officials and the Pelham Fire Chief, my staff and I handed out every last light at the Pelham Firehouse. There's still a lot of work to be done in the surrounding area, but I'm glad that we were able to make the black out a little more tolerable for a good number of Pelham residents.

During Hurricane Sandy Recovery, Senator Klein Delivers Hot Meals to Seniors in Woodlawn

On Friday, my office learned that nearly 150 Woodlawn seniors in a highrise building were still without power. Concerned for these brave folks, my staff and I swept into action. Within three hours, thanks to the genrosity of local volunteers and a great Bronx restaurant (The Pine), I delivered 150 hot meals to every resident in the 100 unit apartment building. It took a lot of walking up dark stairwells, but it was definitely worth it. Assemblyman Jeff Dinowitz joined me, and we can safely say that we have never met a more upbeat and appreciative crowd. Thanks to everyone who helped make it happen!
