There is considerable need by our students, staff and faculty to participate in hurricane relief efforts. To this end, we are organizing a Hurricane Sandy volunteer relief opportunity this Saturday, November 17th for interested students, faculty and staff.
We will be joining City Council Speaker Quinn’s efforts to provide support to hard hit areas in Brooklyn, Queens, and Staten Island. Due to the changing nature of area needs we will not be assigned to a community until that morning. Please be sure that you are able to join us for the entire time, due to the storm’s effect on the areas in which we may be volunteering, there is no alternative transportation out until our bus leaves. Remember we may be assigned to an environmentally distressed area; please wear water resistant or waterproof footwear, dress warmly and in clothes may get ruined or dirty, and bring water.
Buses will leave at 10 a.m. from 250 Broadway (between Murray St. and Park Place in Lower Manhattan) across from City Hall. Please look for the Gray Line New York double-decker buses. Expect to return to City Hall at around 5:00 p.m.
