Fall Rebuilding Day on Staten Island
On October 24, 2015, Rebuilding Together NYC hosted its Fall Rebuilding Day in commemoration of the 3rd anniversary of Hurricane Sandy on Staten Island. With the help of almost 150 volunteers, we repaired six homes, two community centers, and installed solar lights on the exterior of 50 homes in the Midland Beach and New Dorp communities. This work was made possible by generous donations from our sponsors. Pictures from the event can be found on our Facebook page.
