“Strong Island” Women Design Bracelet to Help Sandy Victims

MATTITUCK: Superstorm Sandy will not beach the Long Island spirit. Mattituck natives Jackie Reilly and Vita Giannone and friend Liz Nachman have designed a wristband to help victims of the storm. The women were all personally affected by Sandy, and money made from sales will go toward families in Long Beach, Amityville and Amity Harbor, Bayville, Broad Channel and Oceanside. Their goal is to give $1000 per family, and the rest of the money will go to other relief efforts. The “Stronger Than Sandy” bracelets are $5. Strong Island Rosie the Riveter shirts will also be sold for $15. Both are available on etsy.com.
