LONG BEACH - A community is coming together to help businesses still struggling after Sandy.

Tim Kelly owns a pottery shop on Park Avenue in Long Beach. When community support helped get his store back up and running after Sandy, Kelly decided it was time to help other Long Beach merchants.

Kelly started Project Pay it Forward with the goal of getting businesses back on their feet, one at a time. In addition to providing physical help, like painting, Project Pay it Forward is holding a series of fundraisers for businesses.

The first event will be held Saturday night.
