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

This past weekend, 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 coming weekend, our goal is to recruit 400+ volunteers and transport them to the Rockaways --- 200 on Saturday and 200 on Sunday. Each volunteer is asked to pay $5 to secure their seats, with all proceeds going towards supplies for clean-up.
