Babylon native Sean Malone is bringing Crisis Response International to help people in Lindenhurst affected by Hurricane Sandy."It's been a privilege to be with these people and stand with them and be an advocate for them," says Malone.

Malone says his organization will stay in the community to help, even serving Thanksgiving dinner to 700 people Sunday.
