Celtic Thunder Help With Hurricane Sandy Relief (Recap)


.
On Thursday Celtic Thunder Help With Hurricane Sandy Relief was a top story. Here is the recap: (PAM) Celtic Thunder took time out of their hectic touring schedule to visit the storm ravaged victims of Hurricane Sandy in the heavily Irish American community of Rockaway, Queens.

The band also gathered for a packed unplugged benefit performance at the Greenwich Village hotspot Sullivan Hall later that evening.

The band crossed the country, landing in NYC late Sunday night for an early morning visit to the Navillus Distribution and Warming Center set up in the center of a parking lot in Rockaway Beach, where they personally distributed several hundred warm blankets and gloves which they donated to the Center. The Warming Center has been a destination for those in need of food, clothing, cleaning supplies, and just a warm place to go. Celtic Thunder pitched in to help distribute the other much-needed items. Earlier in the day, they traveled with The Coalition of Hope to see first-hand the severely damaged area. The organization is responsible for the warming tents, which have had up to 750 people there in one day. The band reflected on the day sharing, "you hear the stories and it's something that really touched home with us," band member Emmet Cahill said. "You know we feel very blessed to be able do what we do and we're very lucky we've never gone through something like this. So when we see people in a time of need like this, we basically want to give something back." - more on this story
