October 15, 2021

WOODSIDE, NY – Senate Deputy Leader Michael Gianaris and Queens Borough President Donovan Richards on October 12 hosted a cleaning supplies distribution event for Woodside neighbors impacted by Hurricane Ida. Woodside on the Move joined Senator Gianaris and Borough President Richards’ office. The supplies were donated by The Home Depot. Dozens of area residents picked up cleaning supplies, meals, and pantry staples donated for the event.
“Hurricane Ida upended lives and caused significant damage that continues to this day. We must be here to help our neighbors recover,” said Senate Deputy Leader Michael Gianaris. “I’m proud to partner with Borough President Richards and Woodside on the Move to help our community.”

“Storm recovery isn’t an overnight process, and my office is committed to doing all we can for as long as necessary until all our families impacted by Ida’s historic devastation are made whole again,” said Queens Borough President Donovan Richards, Jr. “Thank you to Senator Gianaris, Woodside on the Move and Home Depot for helping make this critical distribution of supplies possible.”
“Residents of Western Queens have been disproportionately impacted by Hurricane Ida. With cleaning supplies in need for recovering families, I’d like to thank Senator Gianaris and Queens Borough President Richards in proactively leading this effort for our communities,” said Steven Raga, Executive Director for Woodside on the Move.
The leaders urged neighbors to replace their cleaning supplies following clean-up efforts from Hurricane Ida. Reusing mops, brooms, buckets, and other equipment to clean up water damage that may have been caused by sewer overflows can lead to further contamination and the spread of disease.

O oceanic you sing and sail White on your body and yellow on your chimeneas For you're tired of the filthy waters of the harbors You who loved the distant Sporades You who lifted the tallest flags You who sail clear through the most dangerous caves Hail to you who let yourself be charmed by the sirens Hail to you for never having been afraid of the Symplegades (Andreas Empeirikos)   What traveler has not been fascinated by the Greek islands, drawn by the Sirens’ song of a traveler’s dreams? TNH and our video show ‘Mission’ marked the change of the season by transporting viewers into the heart of summer.
