The Seafarer Gift Shop at 28 South Main Street in Sayville is looking for volunteers and donations today to help a Sayville family who lost their house to a fire after the arrival of Hurricane Sandy.

"If you are free today (now is good!) I've spearheaded a food and clothing drive for hurricane victims," said Barbara Whitbread, store owner, in an email this morning sent about 8:30 a.m.

Clothing items are needed for displaced family members:

Boy:  Kindergarten - probably around size 5 or small, maybe size 13 or 1 shoe Boy:  2nd Grade - size 7 or medium, probably size 2 - 2.5 shoe
Ladies:  Size 4

Hi Bern. Community Ambulance will be at Bayport Beach tonight handling out supplies so you might be able to donate the food to them there. It's at the end of Paulanna Avenue and starts about 6:30pm.

To Fara...thank you for a much needed chuckle in all this madness!!! I too have boys clothes and will see what else I have available. No time to make jokes, but I surely needed that!
