Summary of Mission Trip Activities 2013
Gerald J. Ryan Outreach Center, Wyandanch NY: Volunteers spent two days sorting through clothing that was donated right after Sandy. They have been so overwhelmed by the needs following Sandy that they were not able to get to all these donations. Now they will be able to get them out to those in need.
Hollockville Farm and Museum, Riverhead, NY: We helped restore and clear paths for visitors, and schools. Located on the North Shore of Long Island, this areareceived mostly wind damage, but is still getting things back to normal.
Fred Shores Beach Club, Babylon, NY: Volunteers painted picnic tables and part of a building that had been flooded and destroyed by Sandy, and cleaned up the beach area. The president of the beach club sent a thank you email saying in part "I just wanted to extend a HUGE THANK YOU TO BOTH YOU AND ALL YOUR WONDERFUL VOLUNTEER'S... it was such a beautiful thing to do for us all, to come help Sandy victims months and months later when most people have forgotten already the disaster that still looms in our lives every day,, well it was beyond touching, I was moved to tears. The children and the adults were beyond wonderful. I will always be thankful for all that they have done."
Single Family Residence, Mastic Beach, NY: We spent two days and nearly finished installing sheetrock in "Flo's" home. Flo is a senior citizen, and her home wasflooded by Sandy. Unfortunately, an unscrupulous contractor installed sheetrock over the wet and damaged walls. The work had to be redone, but there was no more insurance money. So, it is now being repaired by volunteers. She is extremely grateful for the help and said that all these volunteers have "restored my faith in humanity."
VBS Program, Bronx, NY: Many of our volunteers went into the Bronx to assist with a VBS/day camp program that was serving over 100 children. Their supervision and assistance was much needed, and greatly appreciated.
