An online campaign dedicated to raising money for victims of Hurricane Sandy has surpassed its goal and raised more than $5,000.
Bayside’s Ginny Peiser created a GoFundMe page titled Hurricane Sandy G.O.A.L.S. Family Member.
The page reads:
Hurricane Sandy has brought much devastation to many areas of NYC, Long Island and NJ.
Three of our Goals Family Members, the Minihane's, the Courtney's and the King's, have encountered the loss/severe damage of homes, vehicles, etc.
These three families include League Coaches,(16U/18U Lady Rangers) Shannon and Meg Minihane and Goals Board Member and their Mom, Joan.
The Courtney's include Major Gold Team Member (14U Lady Rangers) Kaitlin and her parents Kathy and Ken. The King's include 16U Lady Ranger Meaghan and her parents Barbara and Brian. In an attempt to support them and assist in helping to get them back on their feet, the G.O.A.L.S. Athletic League will be soliciting donations.
Funds will go towards the purchase of needed items that will help in the rebuilding stage of their lives.
Thank you so much for
your kindness and generosity. Any amount you contribute is very
appreciated and will go towards making this tragic event a little less painful
for three of our own.
A total 58 people have donated $5,725 during the past year. The original goal for the campaign was $4,200.
