PHOTOS: In Wake of Sandy, Soccer Players Make Blankets for League Mates

Mt. Sinai team makes blankets for Lindenhurst team in wake of Sandy.

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.

Click through the images above for photos of the students making the blankets and delivering them at the game.

The Mt Sinai Fillies have proven to be one of the kindest, classiest teams out there. They are a great bunch to play against, and are lucky enough to have true role models guiding them. With examples like that, these girls will go far and touch many... I believe they already have. Thank you. Sincerely, Lindenhurst Fusion U12
