Red Cross Volunteers Help Rebuild Homes Still Damaged From Sandy
MASSAPEQUA, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — Red Cross volunteers spent the day helping residents still displaced by Superstorm Sandy.
More than 70 volunteers worked on homes on Long Island, Brookyn, Queens and Staten Island Saturday still damaged from the storm more than a year later.
One resident who they helped was Vincent Dipalma of Massapequa, who said he could not afford to fix his home without the help and kindness of strangers.
“They’re the magicians,” Dipalma told WCBS 880’s Sophia Hall. “They’re turning my house into my home.”
The Red Cross partnered with six other organizations to help with the rebuilding effort.
