Recently, NECHAMA marked the milestone of 21 straight months of hard work since Hurricane Sandy. As our friends and neighbors gathered together, we took the time to reflect on our accomplishments and celebrate all of those who made it possible. We have assisted more than 244 households thus far and have surpassed our goal of repairing 65 homes damaged by Hurricane Sandy on Long Island.
Some East Coasters who endured Hurricane Sandy in October 2012 begin their stories with the evacuation of their homes. Others begin with their return to their inundated properties. Still others begin with their stories of recovery.
Roderick G of Freeport, Long Island, is different. His Sandy story starts about a month before the super storm came roaring in.
