Last year's event with Chairman Rhea was a huge success and we look forward to helping the hard working people of Far Rockaway.

The effects of Superstorm Sandy still linger in hard hit Far Rockaway, and two organizations are leading an effort to help those who have been valiantly struggling to recover from Sandy. Kars4Kids and the New York City Housing Authority will distribute 1,000 backpacks to children in Far Rockaway. The backpacks will be distributed at two different locations.

"We are so excited to partner with the amazing people that run The New York City Housing Authority," said Kars4Kids spokesman Steven Weldler. "Last year's event with Chairman Rhea was a huge success and we look forward to helping the hard working people of Far Rockaway."
