On the evening of October 30, 2013, a year and a day after Hurricane Sandy made land fall; the Sandy Team sponsored and facilitated a community design workshop for Toms River High School North. The workshop was attended by just over 60 participants; an equal amount of students, faculty/staff, parents and community members gathered for the evening in the Pine Belt Arena. Our pro bono architect CW Brearly Architects was represented by 5 staff members to help guide the participants through the workshop activities. Thank you to all the participants and facilitators for a great evening! Look below for the full charette report.

In the closing days of October 2012, Hurricane Sandy carved a path through the Caribbean before moving up the Atlantic and turning inland at New Jersey, striking many coastal towns. The storm moved north and created a storm surge that devastated the New York/New Jersey Metro area. The event caused major damage and loss of life.
