The Nazareth College Center for Civic Engagement, in collaboration with Wagner College, New York Cares, and All Hands Volunteers in Staten Island, is sponsoring a Hurricane Sandy Rebuild Service Trip for Nazareth students, faculty and staff. Nazareth will send a team of 14 to Staten Island during the college's reading weekend, February 22-24. Led by Shirley Sharp, clinical professor of Social Work, and Lorenzo Rambo, communications officer in Campus Safety, the volunteers will travel by van, stay in the residence halls on the Wagner campus and travel to nearby service sites throughout the weekend.
Nazareth College participants will join All Hands Volunteers, helping residents to clear out water-logged possessions, damaged drywall, insulation, siding, carpets and so on. They may also get the opportunity to help local residents treat their flood-affected homes for mold aided by trained team leaders and a complete kit of specialized equipment. Home Depot is co-sponsoring the trip with a donation of supplies-giving each student a pair of goggles and gloves.
The Nazareth College Team will depart from the Otto A. Shults Community Center on the College campus at 6 a.m. this Friday, 2/22.
