Remember that tent which served as headquarters for the relief effort in Staten Island?

Well, it will be pulled down by New Year’s Day due to the weather.

Volunteers in New Dorp Beach handed out food, clothing, heaters and cleaning supplies.

So far, more than 20 residents have signed a petition to keep the tent up.
