工事は施工業者さんや優秀な大工さんの力によって予定通り進行しています。基本的な配線工事、壁の断熱材の挿入と、外壁パネルの設置がほとんど終了しました。

Last Wednesday the New York Chapter volunteer squad held their first field orientation and assembled teams to go out to Breezy Point, Coney Island, Sea Gate, Tottenville, and Hoboken to begin assessing needs and collecting stories about each community over the weekend - the full report of observations after the break.

The effort marks only the start of AFHNY's work with communities affected by Sandy. The Chapter will hold its second orientation and team building the week after Thanksgiving. The time and location information will be posted to the Chapter Network in the coming days and will be sent out via email for those who have signed up.

Volunteers who have a vehicle and can drive to some of the more remote areas are vital to our efforts. When you RSVP for an orientation, please let us know if you are willing to provide transportation for you team and your neighborhood of origin.
