Last Sunday, in honor of Veteran’s Day and giving back, 12 volunteers joined together to represent Goodwill in the Rockaways.
The volunteers worked under the coordination and direction of Team Rubicon, a group that organizes volunteering events in the Rockaways through communicating with residents about their most pressing needs.
On this trip, the volunteers removed debris, ceiling staples, and water-soaked walls from the basement of one house and canvassed the backyard of a burnt-out house for any family valuables that might be salvaged.
