Civic Engagement; Sandy Relief Trips

Trips from Alfred State scheduled for March 10-12, April 5-7, April 12-14. Each team will consist of 10 people.  There won’t be a cost to participants for these trips.  Faculty, staff, students all participating.

We are working in devastated communities and helping families to begin the long clean-up process. You will be helping residents to clear out water-logged possessions, damaged drywall, insulation, siding, carpets and so on. You may also get the opportunity to help local residents to treat their flood-affected homes for mold after appropriate training and with guidance from an experienced team leader.

This is difficult and dirty work but the rewards are amazing – there’s nothing like the satisfaction of working side by side with other volunteers and local community members and seeing the positive impact you’ve had on a family’s recovery.
