HIGHLAND FALLS, N.Y. — A neighborhood shop in Orange County .
Wilmer Londa smiled as he welcomed back customers at Grandma’s Bagel and Pizzeria in Highland Falls.
His shop suffered more than $30,000 in damage from the fast-moving storms.
The Larkin Community Response Task Force gathered volunteers, donations and other resources to help reopen the shop.
“Had it not been for the foundation that was created and a group of community advocates and organizations, this would not have been possible,” said State Assemblyman Brian Maher, co-founder of the Larkin Task Force.
“I would say thank you very much to him for being back to business so we’re here,” Londa said.
The Larkin Task Force says it’s still waiting for assistance from FEMA before it can help other affected businesses and homeowners.
