One local Lindenhurst business aims to bring the smiles back to the faces of families hard hit by Hurricane Sandy.
Fox Cubs, a division of SilverFox Studios, is hosting the Bring Back the Smiles event this Sunday, December 2.
The business will provide Long Islanders with a free in-studio photo session - and free photos too - to "Bring Back the Smiles" after Sandy, according to company officials.
"Long Islanders have enough to deal with the added stress of Hurricane Sandy, [and] Fox Cubs wants to help eliminate the stress of getting that perfect family photo for the holidays," they said.
Local companies are supporting Fox Cubs efforts, as well.
For instance, Mario's Bakery from Oceanside - another LI location that's been heavily impacted - will be providing treats and cupcakes, and Laser Bounce is providing merchandise for the children. All-Star Limousine Service is also supporting the event.
According to Fox Cubs, in exchange for the photo session and photos, "We're asking all families who participate to bring a new, unwrapped toy to be donated to Toys for Tots, which will be there, as well, with two marines to support the cause."
To schedule an in-studio appointment for Sunday between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m., e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org, and note the appointments are first-come, first-served. Fox Cubs is located at 380 New Highway in Lindenhurst.
