SAN JOSE, CA- Devastating Hurricane Sandy that hit the east coast last week has left thousands of people in need of basic services and supplies. As we process the images of the destruction from this event, we are reminded of the thousands of people that need our help. People who are willing and capable of donating to the relief efforts can do so via the " Hurricane Sandy" donation page.
Two Minor League Baseball organizations, the Brooklyn Cyclones and Staten Island Yankees also suffered significant damage during the storm as well. The New York-Penn League is asking for help to support the Brooklyn and Staten Island clubs, their staff and their communities. Members of the community can contribute to the New York-Penn League Charitable Foundation (a 501C(3) organization), which will help provide funds for items such as food, cleaning supplies and, one of the area's greatest needs, gasoline. Please send donations to New York-Penn League, Attn: Hurricane Sandy Relief, 6161 Dr Martin Luther King Jr Street North, Suite 205, St. Petersburg, FL 33703 and make checks payable to New York-Penn League Charitable Foundation.
The San Jose Giants have made a donation to the relief efforts and are asking those who are in a position to help to do the same. Please join the team in sending hope and strength to these clubs and the entire region.
