Christopher Mallon, left, of Ft. Worth Texas presented the Missanos with $1300 to help the family recover. Mallon and his wife Joyce, both former Long Islanders, raised $2600 through Facebook to help the Missanos as well as a family on Staten Island. Mallon drove up from Texas in a van filled with food donations that he gave to Island Harvest to distribute to those in need. (Nov. 5, 2012) Photo Credit: Newsday/John Paraskevas
