LONG BEACH ISLAND - Long Beach Township Mayor Joseph Mancini promised to give back to everyone who has pitched in to help after Sandy and he is making good on that promise this weekend.

Over 500 first responders are coming in to enjoy free meals, live bands and other great activities. "Without them covering our back, we couldn't have gotten this place clean," Mancini says.

Eric Landskroner reports from Long Beach Island, taking a look at how the community is recovering, and talking about the progress being made in rebuilding what Sandy took away.
