With Staten Island still reeling from Hurricane Sandy, Supreme Knight Carl Anderson and Supreme Warden George Hanna traveled to the hardest hit areas of the island to encourage - and assist - local knights in their relief efforts.
They brought with them from New Haven a truck loaded with relief supplies and a check for $75,000 to assist the relief efforts of knights in New York.
They joined New York State Deputy Sal Restivo and dozens of New York Knights in distributing the relief supplies at Fr. Drumgoole Council 5917 and toured the devastation at - and in the area surrounding - Manresa Council 2147.
The latest donation of $75,000 to New York brings to $325,000 the total donated by the Supreme Council to relief efforts in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut.
