GoodwillNyNj on the Ground: Goodwill Volunteers and the Rockaways

Last Sunday, in honor of Veteran’s Day and giving back, 12 volunteers joined together to represent Goodwill in the Rockaways.

GoodwillNyNj headed out to the Rockaways, putting boots on the ground and spreading hope through hard work and ample goodwill.

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.

Our team led by article author Emily Bell, here joined by the Belle Harbor home owner and Team Rubicon leader.

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.
