At the Town Board Meeting of the Town of Mamaroneck, LMC-TV, the public access station serving Larchmont and Mamaroneck, presented a donation of $1000 to the Town of Mamaroneck Flood Relief Fund.

Erik Lewis, Executive Director of LMC-TV presented Town Supervisor Valerie Moore O’Keeffe with a $1000 check representing LMC-TV’s fundraising efforts from their 50/50 Raffle Sale, program ads from their Award Night on May 25, and general donations made to them by the public for flood relief after LMC-TV announced its intention to devote any surpluses after expenses from these events to the cause of Mamaroneck flood relief.

"We are honored to be able serve our community in this hour of need," Lewis
said. "We produced informative programming in English and Spanish, created a 24- hour emergency notice bulletin board, and now we are very pleased to be able to contribute financially as well with money we have raised."

The check was written to the Town of Mamaroneck Flood Relief Fund, a fund
created by the Town of Mamaroneck to give direct grants to community
residents in need. Contributions to the fund are tax deductible and its
grant making process is overseen by a tri-municipal panel of community
