Every day for the past 23 days, Vanessa McHugh fills up the back of her car with pizza. She and her three kids then drive to various coastal regions that were hit by Hurricane Sandy. Today, her Pizza Patrol is in Far Rockaway. (SOUNDBITE) (English) LILLIAN ZEIGLER, HURRICANE SANDY VICTIM, SAYING: "Actually what she does is a great contribution to our neighborhood. It shows that people actually care about the suffering and things that we are going through. We're trying to rebuild ourselves and we need all the help that we can get." This region was amongst the hardest hit. Hundreds of thousands of people were left without electricity. Criticism from residents about the government's response, or lack there of, has been ongoing... which makes kindness like McHugh's all the more appreciated. (SOUNDBITE) (English) BRADY, VOLUNTEER HELPING HURRICANE SANDY VICTIMS, SAYING: "I think it's a great idea giving back. There's a lot of people that's really hurting, very frustrated and a lot of pain. And this can brighten up their moment right now. What she's doing is amazing. I encourage it. I applaud it." McHugh gets her pizza at half price and urges other people who want to help Sandy victims to call their local pizzerias and ask for similar bargains.
