Deer Park SC, Bay Shore SC, Auburndale SC, West Babylon Pride and Manorville Starz (who “adopted”their division opponents, the Lindenhurst Lightning) also collected goods and raised money for storm victims.

East Islip SC, assisted by the neighboring West Islip SC, hosted nearly 70 intramural and travel teams on in their “Soccer Over Sandy” tournament and raised $28,000
