Event Details

The Situation



The Rockaways, located on a peninsula situated along the Atlantic Ocean in the borough of Queens, was devastated by a large storm surge from Hurricane Sandy this October.



Relatively isolated from the more populated metropolis, the community has been struggling to receive the proper recovery and aid it needs. The majority of residents are without power, electricity or heat. Many homes are destroyed, and along with them, decades’ worth of belongings and memories lost.



With nighttime freezing temperatures and a lack of on-the-ground manpower, the culturally and historically rich peninsula is in dire need.

 



Volunteer

Two weekends ago, a few of us rented a 15-passenger van and ventured to the Rockaways to volunteer and witness the devastation firsthand. From seeing the piles of debris, overturned cars and flooded homes lining the streets, one thing was clear: More than anything, the Rockaways need volunteers to lend their time, hands and hearts to help this tight-knit community rebuild and recover. 




For the past five weekend, we have brought around 800 volunteers and transported them to the Rockaways.


Every weekend, we will recruit volunteers and transport them to the Rockaways. Please click above to view available dates. Transportation is now being provided for us with funds raised by Opening Ceremony & The Standard. Thank you very much for your support!

 

If you plan on doing manual labor or demolition, we ask that you bring your own supplies. 

  • Leather/Suede work gloves
  • Rubber gloves
  • Headlamp or flashlight
  • Dust or surgical mask
