A nonprofit organization in Brooklyn badly damaged by Hurricane Sandy got some much-needed help in their recovery effort.
More than six feet of water flooded the central offices of the Jewish Community Council of Greater Coney Island.
All the furniture was destroyed, and management was relying on donations to get back up and running.
The Loews Regency Hotel stepped in to help Friday by offering several used flat-screen TV's, office chairs and rugs.
The center said the donation is much appreciated, considering everything they've been through.
"The pressure of the water caused the concrete slab that the building is built on to heave up and crack," said Rabbi Moshe Wiener, executive director of the Jewish Community Council of Greater Coney Island. "That caused the walls and the ceilings to also collapse. So the entire area, the entire first floor, had to be totally gutted, and until a week ago, it was a sand dune."
Some items were also donated to the Seaside Senior Center in Far Rockaway.
