Stephen Siller Tunnel To Towers Foundation
Life after Hurricane Sandy has delivered a much deserved gift to a Staten Island family. Volunteers pitched in to help restore their house, left devastated by the storm.
On Tuesday, the Swedish furniture retailer announced it will be donating home furnishings – including hundreds of beds, mattresses, dining room sets, and sofas – to those who lost “the basic furniture that helps to make a house a home.”
As Andrea pounded wind and rain on a block in Oakwood Beach, dozens of volunteers were inside a home on Adelaide Avenue gutted by Sandy.
Hurricane relief wasn’t the original goal for a foundation founded in the wake of 9/11. But just as things changed on 9/11, life shifted gears once again last October for Frank Siller, chairman of the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation.

Most people probably know the Stephen Siller Tunnel To Towers Foundation for its 9/11-related charities, but superstorm Sandy has them extending their efforts.
The Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation will install 25 to 30 completely furnished mobile homes on the 40-acre church property.
A special donation for Superstorm Sandy victims is coming, thanks to good-hearted people a third of the way across the country.
Getting food, water and clothing to those struck by Sandy in Staten Island was the top priority Saturday. The damage in some areas were beyond belief.
