Bayside’s All Saints Church will host a dance this weekend in an effort to raise money for local victims of Hurricane Sandy.
The dance will take place from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. at the church, which is located at 214th Place and 40th Avenue.
Father Laurence Byrne said the event is free, but attendees should bring a donation.
“We want to take care of people, but have a good time doing it,” he said. “Maybe it will give people without power and heat a chance to get out of their dark homes for a while.”
Donations can include money, cleaning supplies, batteries, toys, coats and clothes.
Byrne said nonperishable food items are also encouraged.
“We’re looking for items that can be easily cooked,” he said. “A lot of people are diminished in terms of what they can cook.”
The donated items will primarily be given to residents in Queens, especially the Rockaways.
The dance will include refreshments. For more information, call 718-229-5631.
