Earl Prime, manager of 340 Coop and Pastor Daren Mitchell auction items for the benefit Saturday, Dec.1 at the Weymouth Legion for victims of hurricane Sandy on Staten Island.
Weymouth residents reached out to victims of Superstorm Sandy and gave over $4,700 to help at the Community Auction for Staten Island Hurricane Sandy Relief held in the Weymouth Legion.
The Weymouth Church of Christ benefit organized for the people on Staten Island included a silent and hourly live auction, live music, bake sale, food, and drink on Saturday, Dec. 1.
Over 200 people attended and more than 100 items were donated for auction.
“The attendance and outpouring of donated goods has been great,” said Daren Mitchell, pastor of Weymouth Church of Christ.
People on Staten Island face devastation and a hard winter this year as some have lost their homes and are still without heat and electricity.
“People’s lives have changed forever,” says Mitchell.
Ongoing donations for the Staten Island families are welcome.
