Due to the power shortage, there was a pizzeria, at 1300 Jericho Tnpk. in New Hyde Park, called Jessie’s Fireshack and Pizzeria that gave pizza and food to shelters and people in need around the neighborhood.
I believe its effort is an honorable thing. Instead of just throwing the food away because it will go bad, the owners — Harry and Kai Chu — decided to help others.
These gentleman make me proud to be a New Yorker because in times of need that is what we do best: We help each other.
Thank you, Jessie’s Fireshack & Pizzeria. Because of you, my family had dinner that day.
