In the wake of Hurricane Sandy, The Long Island Junior Soccer League cancelled the remainder of their 2012 fall season. Upon hearing of the devastation in neighboring towns, Joanne Beers and her daughter, Grace, of Miller Place, wanted to do something to help out one team directly.
The girls from the Mt. Sinai U12 Fillies got together and made 20 no-sew fleece blankets for their league-mates in Lindenhurst, and both teams met Nov. 18 at Lindenhurst Middle School for a friendly scrimmage and to deliver the blankets.
