Title:Staten Island Mission – Hurricane Sandy – Dec., 2012

Staten Island Dec.,2012

Catherine, Roger, Lamar and Travis left St. Peter’s after church on Dec. 1, 2012 to journey back to Staten Island. Another clothes distribution was getting organized but not one for school children, but for the entire island devastated by Hurricane Sandy a month earlier. 

Catherine’s sister Lynnette, pictured with the group above, worked with a local Congressman to have clothes from Idaho and other places delivered. St. Peter’s group along with others, including Moravians from Bethlehem, washed them at a local laundry, carried them in  and worked on sorting the clothes. There were other groups of donations, including bedding and shoes.  Groups from NY were coming over the weekend, including Trinity Wall Street. Catherine left on Wednesday for responsibilities at St. Peter’s and the others stayed through Friday. 

A gallery from pictures from Catherine and Lamar is here.
