Thanksgiving meals were distributed by the staff of Flushing House to residents of Dayton Towers on Shore Front Parkway, Rockaway Beach, as well as local law enforcement, FEMA employees and other volunteers.

The three-building apartment complex, which is home to hundreds of Rockaway families, had been without electricity and heat since Hurricane Sandy struck on Oct. 29.

About 350 people were served traditional Thanksgiving meals by 11 Flushing House staff members who volunteered their time and effort toward the Sandy Relief campaign.

Also, six Flushing House residents helped pack the meals, under supervision of dietary staff, back at their retirement residence in Flushing.

Welcome to the discussion.
