Hempstead Town Joins 'Kids Helping Kids'

A weekly look-in at news from around the Town of Hempstead.

Town of Hempstead Supervisor Kate Murray was on hand to show her support at the Kids Helping Kids Way Inc. 2012 “Making a Warmth of Difference” winter apparel program press conference event at the Oheka Castle in Huntington earlier this month.

Since 1997, Kids Helping Kids encourages philanthropy in young people under the age of 18. They have raised more than $1.5 million in a combination of financial donations and donations of products for kids in need while helping improve their quality of life.

The program focuses on distributing new winter apparel to keep children and their families warm for the upcoming cold winter months. Kids Helping Kids works with several Long Island Agencies including the not-for-profit Education and Assistance Corporation (EAC) based in Hempstead.

Another photo oportunity for Kate Murray. Kate, When are you going to practice what you preach ??? If you care so much about helping others why don't you give a portion of your $2.4 million dollar postage budget (THE TAXPAYERS' MONEY) to help victims of Hurricane Sandy. I've emailed you several times about it, yet for some reason you refuse to answer. Are you scared to admit your popularity is more important to you than the welfare of the residents you are paid to serve? (just admit it, we all know it is, see http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nzq67LIQ3dw ).
