2012 Babylon Village Patch Persons of the Year: Babylon Helps

Organization dedicated time to helping Hurricane Sandy victims in Babylon and beyond.

Babylon Village has spoken! Readers cast their vote for our 2012 Person of the Year for the last two weeks after suggesting candidates in the weeks leading up the end of the year.

The 2012 Persons of the Year are... Babylon Helps! 

Babylon Helps is an organization made up of residents that came together to assist the residents of Babylon that were impacted by Hurricane Sandy in October. Between organizing multiple donation drives into their headquarters at the American Legion Post 94.

The group has continued to help the residents, especially those along the shoreline and in Fred Shores, where damage was brutal and extensive to many family's homes. Babylon Helps continues to collect donations and distribute funds collected along with neighborhood events for affected areas.

Congratulations to all members of Babylon Helps and everyone who donated their time following the massive hurricane!
