(VALENCIA, CA) -- Performer / Director Melissa Monet is using Juneís Charity of the Month selection to help an organization close to her heart. A native of Staten Island, New York, Monet chooses the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation to receive $1000 from Girlfriends Films. Monet worked with the charity directly after Hurricane Sandy decimated Staten Island, and the money will help further relief efforts.

"I would like to thank Dan, Moose, and the entire team at Girlfriends Films for their generosity and kindness," says Monet. "Itís because of donations like that the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation is able to continue its efforts in the recovery of Staten Island. Every month Girlfriends Films chooses a charity suggested by an adult actress that is near and dear to their hearts, and every Christmas they choose ten more for holiday donations. I am proud and humbled Girlfriends Films has once again asked me to choose a charity I feel is doing so much to help so many. Thank you."
After Hurricane Sandy hit Monetís hometown on October 29, 2012, killing 14 and destroying numerous neighborhoods, the adult icon made the decision to return and help in the relief efforts. While her family was safe, many childhood friends and families she knew her whole life lost their homes, cars, and more.
Monetís desire to help led her to Tunnel to Towers, about which she says, "These beautiful people, all volunteers themselves, gave months of their lives to help others. I have never felt or witnessed more love than I did with Tunnel to Towers. Items were given out, but it was hugs that prevailed when shocked victims walked in with no answers, nowhere to go, no heat, no food, and no homes. They turned victims into survivors by empowering the people to move forward. In the aftermath of the storm, Tunnels to Towers was thinking ahead; gutting, mold remediation, and rebuilding was next on the list. It is a rare opportunity to work with such an amazing group of people, and I feel blessed to have had this opportunity."
"We always encourage those involved with our charity program to select a cause dear to them," states Girlfriends Films Vice President Moose. "Melissa definitely did that by helping to give back to her hometown. We feel privileged to be a part of Melissaís mission to assist her community."
Recent Girlfriends Films movies starring Melissa Monet include "Lesbian Sex: Volume 2" and "Lesbian Seductions Older / Younger: Volume 35." Monet also directed "Strays" and "To Protect and to Serve."
