Welcoming Hurricane Sandy Families Home

Thousands of families continue to be displaced as a result of Hurricane Sandy.

In an effort to welcome some of those families home, High Socks for Hope, a charity run by Yankees pitcher David Robertson and his wife, Erin, and NBTY Helping Hands, the charitable arm of NBTY, a leading global manufacturer and distributor of vitamins, supplements and sports nutrition, delivered and donated furniture to families who are no longer displaced.

Volunteers from High Socks for Hope, including Yankees pitcher David Robertson, teamed up with volunteers from NBTY Helping Hands to deliver and unload a 30-foot truck filled with new furniture being donated to families in Far Rockaway, NY.

In addition to the four families whose homes were furnished, the donation is expected to provide enough capital to furnish the homes of six additional families in the hurricane-devastated area.
