EWMMS in Amityville open tomorrow to provide storm relief

Edmund W. Miles Middle School in Amityville will open its doors to Amityville residents on Tuesday, Nov. 6, 2012 to provide minor relief to local victims of Superstorm Sandy. The school, which is normally closed to students on this day (for Election Day), will open its doors from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

 EWMMS will provide hot coffee and tea in the school cafeteria. Bathroom facilities with hot water and use of the school’s computer lab for Internet access and electric for cell phone charging will be made available. School staff members have donated clothing and some non-perishable food items, which will also be available on a first come, first served basis, shared basis. EWMMS staff members will be on hand to assist visitors.

 As noted, the building will remain open from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. EWMMS is NOT equipped to accommodate residents overnight, therefore it is not a designated shelter. All Amityville residents are encouraged to stop by.

 EWMMS is located at 501 Broadway (Route 110) in Amityville, NY, just north of Route 27 on the east side, between North and South Drives.  For more information call 631-565-6200.
