“Long Trunks donates $2,000 to Swingbellys today! Within a week of its 6th anniversary, Swingbellys was completely destroyed by Hurricane Sandy. While most businesses focused on how to rebuild, they focused on how to help their community. Their selflessness was inspiring. Owner Sean Sullivan cooked food outside Long Beach City Hall to feed all of our first responders dealing with the aftermath. Swingbellys later helped to organize a massive Thanksgiving dinner to feed anyone in need. Recently, Sean worked with Project Pay it Forward to help Trainors reopen. With all this said, it is no wonder why we have chosen Swingbellys to be our third donation recipient! We are honored to be able to help them reopen their doors, after doing so much for Long Beach, this is the least we can do. Besides, we miss the Mac and Cheese!”
