Thanks to a
partnership between the Girl Scouts of Nassau County and LI Sports
Complex, more than 65 Girl Scouts from the hardest hit communities of
Long Island, enjoyed a day of fun and “normalcy” Dec. 6.
“It is incredibly important that children get to play and
be themselves, especially in the wake of disaster as so many of our
Girl Scouts have witnessed over the past month due to Hurricane
Sandy,” said Donna Ceravolo, CEO of Girl
Scouts of Nassau County. “Play, recreation, exercise and fun are at the
top of their 'needs' list as they begin to recover from this
devastation. It is our goal to bring back some normalcy to these girls
and we thank LI Sports Complex for partnering with us
to provide this opportunity."
Girl Scout Brownies and Juniors from the south shore of
Nassau County were able to participate in kickball games, line soccer,
gaga and more at this special evening of play.
Jamie Diamond, owner of LI Sports Complex adds, “As a
long time resident of Lido Beach, one of the areas most effected by
Hurricane Sandy, I saw the need to give our girls a positive outlet and
experience during this slow and tedious
recovery process. LI Sports Complex wanted to find a way to give back to these communities in need and we are proud to partner with the Girl Scouts of Nassau County to do so.”
