As many in the New York metro area know well, Queens was hit hard by Hurricane Sandy nearly five years ago, especially in Queens. They remember how difficult the first few days and weeks were as the water receded and the damage and destruction became evident. Lives lost, homes destroyed, businesses damaged and places of employment unable to function or even open their doors.
The Queens Chamber of Commerce and the Queens Chamber of Commerce Foundation (a 501(c)(3)) and the Queens business community are hosting an effort to again “Repair Restore and Renew” the businesses, employers and hard workers in the Houston metropolitan area.
They have reached out to the Houston Metropolitan Chamber to receive the financial funds and assistance gathered. A tax-deductible financial donation will help the Houston Metropolitan Chamber assist their members and the business community get back on their feet and working.
You can send a check to Queens Chamber of Commerce Foundation, Hurricane Harvey Relief, Suite 140, 75-20 Astoria Boulevard, East Elmhurst, NY 11370, or make a donation at queenschamber.org.
