Like Breezy Point , the Rockaways and others areas of the coastline, Coney Island
was hard hit. While We were blessed that the Wall sustained no damage but we are
cognizant that so many others lost so much. The wall, besides helping to support
the work of foundations like the Siller Foundation, we are doing what good we can,
where we can.
Marie Lo Prestie lost nearly everything in the Hurricane.She also lost her husband
Anthony 2 years ago. Anthony served 4 years in the US Army, and at his funeral
she was given a US flag. It was lost in the destruction of Hurricane Sandy. Because
the military only gives out one flag to a deceased’s family, the would not replace
the flag for Maria.When her sister, Alice Dunn called, we decided to do everything
to help.With the help of the Jewish War Veterans and Dignity Memorial, Wall Founder,
Sol Moglen, presented her a replacement flag in a presidential case on Saturday,
Dec. 1st, 2012. Please check the attachments for the story.
The Foundation is donating 1000 winter hats honoring NYPD to Victims of Hurricane
Sandy in Breezy Point and the Rockaways. If you’d like to contribute to our effort,

receive one of our caps. Thanks you.
