“After Hurricane Sandy left many on Staten Island without electricity, gasoline, cars and even their homes, we didn’t wait for help to come,” said Theo Rossi. “We rose up to help those who needed it. Staten Strong is more than a charity–we’re a community taking care of each other. “
Founded by a group of Staten Island natives, including Rossi, “we’re working day in and day out to help our neighbors rebuild their lives.”
