Nyack College Reaches Out After the Storm

Posted by Deborah.Walker on Thursday November 15, 2012

Nyack College students have gone into the Tri-State New York area to volunteer on post-Hurricane Sandy cleanup and delivery of supplies supervised by faculty and staff.

One student group, Hands of Compassion, traveled with the New Life Community Health Center ( in Elmhurst, NY to take supplies to residents of Rockaway Beach. 

Intercultural Studies Professor Scott Reitz took a crew of intercultural studies, business, education, and nursing students with him to volunteer in New Jersey with Samaritan's Purse. The Boone, NC-based organization, headed by Franklin Graham, sent volunteers to Atlantic, Bergen, and Ocean Counties in New Jersey and to Nassau County in New York. 

Nyack’s Hands of Compassion, LoSTANDfound, and Students Against Hunger have scheduled other outreach effort. 

Please continue to pray for people who are still suffering as a result of the storm and for the volunteers and other respondents who are attempting to serve them.
