A Day of Fun for Sandy Victims

More than 65 Girl Scouts from the hardest hit communities enjoyed a day of “normalcy.”

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.”
