It’s January 6th and the holidays already seem like a distant memory. Some of us spent time with far flung family and some of us relaxed in NYC, but we were more eager to get back to work than we would have been at any other job.
One of the best things that happened over our break was that one of the families we’ve worked with the longest is one step closer to moving home. They’ve started to rebuild! We’re excited that they took all the necessary steps to rebuild safely and that we were able to provide them with the support they needed to do that.
We can’t tell you how excited we are, and it makes us reflect on how much progress community relief efforts have made across the board. One of the things grassroots groups are so good at is helping people who might otherwise fall though the cracks. It’s important work and we’re happy to do it.
Of course, we couldn’t do this work without you, and we want to share these successes because your support makes it all happen!
With so much going on all of the time, it’s also good to look back on how far we’ve come since the storm. On that note, we’d like to share with you a little photo timeline of the stages we’ve been through since the storm, so you can have an idea of what the work you support looks like, from beginning to (almost!) the end.
Please share this post with others who would like to participate in these efforts, but who cannot make it down to volunteer. Anyone can be part of this efforts! Check out our slideshow below, and pass on our Indiegogo Campaign to get 250 families displaced by Sandy home safe.
