Despite many of its members suffering devastating blows from Hurricane Sandy, the Howard Beach Kiwanis Club has continued their mission of community service throughout the year.

Since the storm, the club has donated thousands of dollars to churches and synagogues in Howard Beach damaged by Sandy and held fundraisers and food drives for storm victims in the community and elsewhere, working with Kiwanis clubs all over the country to raise money in the aftermath of Sandy.

Under the leadership of President Edward Tudisco, the Howard Beach Kiwanis Club made good on their promise to donate a new trauma kit to the Lindenwood Volunteer Ambulance Corps. The club has also remain steadfast in their charity work on other fronts, taking part in this year’s Juvenile Diabities Research Foundation walk at St. Helen Church, holding a charity car wash in June with members of the Key Club from Bayside High School and spearheading a neighborhood beautification project on Cross Bay Boulevard.

Welcome to the discussion.
