New Rochelle resident Vin Parise sent a message to his friends on Facebook and got a big response to help out people in need from Sandy. The following is what he put on Facebook.the event took place this past weekend.
I know it is short notice but I am organizing a bus of volunteers to
head to Breezy Point to help a family & their neighborhood with
Hurricane Sandy cleanup. This community has lost so much and need a
lot of help. They are currently overloaded with donations but do not
have nearly enough manpower.
We will be leaving at 9:30 am Sat. morning from New Rochelle &
returning late afternoon around 4:00 pm.
The cost is $20 per person, which will help pay for the bus & a good
amount of the supplies that he will purchase at Home Depot.
We are taking the first 30 people - so please message Vin Parise or
Amy Torigian Parise via Facebook if you are interested.
Please wear work clothing & high boots because it's muddy & dirty down there.
They will provide food & water for volunteers. We will have a great
time & help out a lot of people!
Bus leaves: 33 President St. New Rochelle, NY 10801 at 9:30 am Saturday.
