The Town of Babylon Fire Chiefs Association, in conjunction with their Hurricane Relief Fund, will hold a fundraising blitz throughout the town on Saturday, Jan. 5 to help raise money for the victims of Hurricane Sandy.
The blitz will begin at 9 a.m. at Babylon Town Hall as members from all 11 of the town's fire departments will take up posts at major intersections donning their firefighting boots.
The firefighters will ask residents to help "fill the boot" with donations for people still recovering from Hurricane Sandy, which struck the area over two months ago.
All money donated will go directly to Town residents in need of monetary help.
In addition to over 150 firefighters and 20 of their trucks, Town Supervisor Rich Schaffer, former Town Councilwoman Ellen McVetty and members of the Fire Chiefs' Association will be out to ask the public for their help.
According to a release from the town, two high-profile locations in the town will include Commack Road and Deer Park Avenue in North Babylon and Route 109 at Little East Neck Road in West Babylon.
