Student Volunteers (L-R): Ronan Storer, Sidney Karr, Chaplain Corey MacPherson, Katie Smith, Danielle Wilson, Sarah Brule, Kelsey Shoulla, Alicia Mahony, Alexander Mack, and Josh Lojzim
A team of nine students volunteered their time following finals week to help with Hurricane Sandy disaster relief in the Freeport, NY area. The team is staying from December 10-15 and is partnering with Nazarene Disaster Relief and the Freeport Church of the Nazarene to assist in “mudding out houses” – cleaning up houses flooded during the hurricane so they can be repaired. ENC faculty and staff donated funds to assist the students in their trip; the college community also contributed a U-Haul of goods last month for the NDR warehouse in Bronx, NY.
