New York Service Event - Hurricane Sandy March 16, 2013
Alongside more than 200 AmeriCorps members, CNCS CEO Wendy Spencer and Director of AmeriCorps Bill Basl will join local representatives and volunteers to clean up a damaged beach, repair a daycare center, and help area residents get back on their feet. These efforts build on AmeriCorps’ long-standing commitment to helping communities use service to spark local solutions to local challenges. The service projects were made possible by Time-Warner’s contribution to the AmeriCorps recovery efforts.
Other attendees include Gary Bagley, Executive Director of New York Cares; Diahann Billings-Burford, Chief Service Officer for the City of New York; and Susan Stern, Chair of NY Volunteers at the New York State Commission on National and Community Service.
