On April 28th, Supervisor Rich Schaffer and Deputy Supervisor Tony Martinez were in attendance for Camp Bulldog’s closing ceremony at Shorefront Park in Lindenhurst. At the ceremony, Supervisor Schaffer and Deputy Supervisor Martinez joined other local officials and hundreds of guests in thanking the organization for their extraordinary work and service that they provided to those affected by Superstorm Sandy over the past six months.
Camp Bulldog was formed following Superstorm Sandy last fall and has assisted storm victims by collecting clothing donations, serving hot food, providing cleaning supplies, maintaining a food pantry, and offering informational services. Alongside the Lindenhurst Rotary and Interact clubs, Camp Bulldog helped arrange the “Beautification After Sandy” effort to clean nearby properties that were damaged by the storm.
