Heart of the East End – April 15th, 2022

Rocco Carriero and Natalie Massa, Friday Morning Tea Underwritten by Village Overhead Doors

Private wealth manager Rocco Carriero discusses the importance of action. The current conflict between Ukraine and Russia led him and his 12-year-old son Luca to spur a two-day drive at Westhampton Beach Middle School. They gathered 1,000 boxes of food and supplies for delivery through the 106th Rescue Wing at Francis S. Gabreski airport and iloveukraine.org group put together by Natalie Massa, a Water Mill resident who was born in Ukraine. Massa said all supplies are being shipped at press time to the support organization Future of Polissya in Kiev and a church in her hometown of Khmelnitskyi where she said 200,000 refugees are currently located after fleeing their homes. An Easter egg coloring event supporting iloveukraine.org will take place at 11 a.m. tomorrow at the Greek church located at 111 St. Andrews Road in Southampton.
