Officials, residents in Yonkers work to provide relief to hurricane victims
Residents and officials in Yonkers are doing their part to provide relief to victims of Hurricane Katrina.
Mayor Phil Amicone (R-Yonkers) pledged Thursday to help those devastated by the hurricane. Yonkers police and fire officials, along with members of FEMA, are preparing to head down south. Amicone says he is unsure exactly how many people will be going, but says he wants to give back for all the kindness New York was shown during 9/11. Amicone is also urging other city agencies and residents to assist by contributing to a hurricane disaster relief fund. He says anyone who would like to make a donation should contact city hall.
