Many hands do some very good work!

Friends of Rockaway, a non-profit, is taking volunteers in groups to do actual re-building of homes damaged by Hurricane Sandy. Similar to Habitat, this will be a team-build day, Saturday, November 14th, out in the Rockaways.

The Park Slope Civic Council can bring as many people as are interested in signing up; the more people they have, the more houses they can repair.

If you have always wanted to volunteer with actual physical work to see something change for the better, this is an excellent and rewarding way to do something to help in NYC.

UPDATE: A team with considerable talent and enormous energy DID get there this past Saturday, and here’s a photo of them.
