Yonkers A.O.H and Hurricane Sandy Relief Efforts



YONKERS A.O.H. TO ASSIST IN HURRICANE SANDY RELIEF EFFORTS

Division One members shopping for supplies at Sam's Club In Elmsford

             The devastation brought on by Hurricane Sandy has affected thousands of homeowners, businesses and families in the Tri-State area.  One of the most shocking results is the large number of people who have lost everything they own; from homes, to automobiles, to everyday items like clothing and personal items.

Boxing up supplies for storm damaged areas
             
            The members of Division One have responded by pledging $500 to the AOH Hurricane Sandy Relief Fund which is being run by the A.O.H. National Board.  Members also resolved to get personally involved in the relief efforts.  In conjunction with The Aisling Irish Community Center, members went shopping for supplies that are in desperate need in the storm ravaged areas.  They boxed up several items including diapers, baby food, batteries, flashlights and cleaning products and delivered them to the Aisling Center for distribution.  

The Aisling Center's efforts have been nothing short of inspiring!
           
            The Aisling Center has informed us that the level of devastation is absolutely tremendous, and that relief efforts will have to continue for months into the future. 
            Members of Division One are also preparing to volunteer for The Irish Day of Action, which is being organized by the Irish Consulate in New York.  Buses will leave the Aisling Center at 7:00 am on Saturday, November 24th and return at 3:00 pm.  They have set up an online registration page for those who want to volunteer. 

            The link to this page can be found. (HERE)

The Irish Day of Action is a monumental task

Hurricane Sandy Relief Message




A Message From The National President



Brendan Moore-AOH National President



Dear Brothers:


                    Many parts of the Northeast have been devastated. Hurricane Sandy has left us with unimaginable misery in terms of destruction, dislocation, and despair. Areas with extremely high concentrations of Hibernians truly resemble war zones where dark and heatless homes faced this frigid morning with temperatures
averaging 25 degrees.

                   I realize you have seen the tremendous loss on TV.  A neighbor of mine told me that when a newscaster showed people burning their own furniture to stay warm, he had to stop looking at the evening news.  But we, as Hibernians, cherish an Irish Catholic legacy that compels us not to look away, but instead to consistently respond to the needs of those among us and around us.

                    If we are to fulfill the enduring mission of the Ancient Order of Hibernians, then we know that it is our responsibility to reach out with assistance and the support of our prayers so that spirits broken by a sense of helplessness will not soon be crushed by an added burden of hopelessness.

                  In an emergency conference call last night, the AOH National Board unanimously voted to donate $25,000 for AOH Storm Relief. In addition, programs has been authorized to both process donations and provide an opportunity for Hibernians impacted in various ways to request assistance from their Hibernian Brothers.

                We are counting on the generosity of our State Boards, County Boards, Divisions, and all Hibernians everywhere. If every Division, County Board, and State Board were to contribute at least $200,
we would total well in excess of $100,000 without even counting the generous donations from each of our members!

HOW TO MAKE A TAX DEDUCTIBLE DONATION:

All checks MUST be written: Pay To The Order of Hibernian Charity.

Memo portion of your check MUST read: AOH Storm Relief.

Send all donations to Edward Dougherty, Hibernian Charity Sec—7236 Brous Ave, Phila, PA 19149

AOH Storm Relief Request Forms available from: State Presidents OR aoh.com (website)
OR from Seamus Boyle--3097 Willits Road, Philadelphia, PA 19114 (shay39@comcast.net)

                  Brothers, because the will of God is the need of the hour, I ask this entire Order to please respond generously and immediately.


Fraternally and gratefully,


Brendan Moore
AOH National President
