We would like to welcome back the participants from the Hurricane Sandy Rebuild Service Trip! The Center for Civic Engagement in collaboration with Wagner College in Staten Island sponsored a trip for Nazareth students, faculty, and staff. We sent a team of 14 to Staten Island during the Reading Weekend, February 22-24.
Disaster relief work in advance is challenging because of the ever changing but pressing needs of the affected community. Areas on Staten Island devastated by Hurricane Sandy are dealing with chronic issues of hunger, specifically access to hot and healthy foods, long term housing and employment as well as issues that require quick and immediate response like demolition and construction.
