LONG BEACH, MS (WLOX) -
After Hurricane Katrina damaged the coast, Long Beach, New York sent money and aid for Long Beach, Mississippi. On Saturday, Long beach, Mississippi raised money to for victims of Hurricane Sandy to return the favor.
"Hot chicken," yelled a volunteer at the Long Beach Town Green.
Organizers had just the right recipe to help people in need. They sold whole cooked chicken and BBQ pork butts to raise funds for Hurricane Sany victims in Long Beach, New York.
Event Coordinator George Bass said after Hurricane Katrina ravaged the Gulf Coast, Long Beach, New York sent money and aid to Long Beach, Mississippi.
"We've had probably four hour intervals where we've had volunteers here and we've probably had anywhere from 40-75 volunteers at those intervals," said Bass.
Among those volunteers were boy scouts from troop 205.
They weren't very old when Katrina devastated the Coast, but they still knew the importance of lending a helping hand.
"I think that it's good to help each other. Now it's our turn to help y'all," said 11-year-old boy scout Logan Thibodeaux.
Behind those giving hearts were hungry stomachs.
"I got a chicken and a roast. I'm going to eat it all myself," said Brian Chancey, who just purchased pork and chicken.
"We're going to go home and try it right now," said Pearl Wallace.
"I wish I could do more to help," said Dolly Williamson.
With more than $18 billion in damages, Long Beach, New York is slowly recovering from Hurricane Sandy.
Hoping to raise $8,000 with this event, Long Beach, Mississippi is just trying to provide a little relief and more than anything--encouragement.
"Hang in there, it will all work out," said Dolly Williamson.
