Mitzvah Day Hurricane Ida Recovery Effort

On Mitzvah Day, Sunday, November 14, ten WJC members bravely volunteered with the Fuller Center in Mamaroneck to assist in their ongoing Hurricane Ida recovery efforts. After being greeted by the dynamic Fuller Center CEO, Jim Killoran, we split up into two groups based on our interest. One group, comprised of Jonathan Berg and Rob Weisstuch, spent their morning hanging sheet rock in a house alongside a long time Fuller Center volunteer and 3 cadets from West Point. This work aided the Fuller Center in their efforts to ready homes for the holidays for all of their clients who lost their home during the hurricane. The remaining WJC members – Amy Fastenberg, Cindy and Randy Heller, Marcia Jaeger, Noah Mass, Alynn Perl, Eve Edelman Russ, and Alice Weiss tackled demolition of the moldy walls in a building donated to the Fuller Center for use as their winter command center. Since the hurricane, the Fuller Center has been based in a trailer in a parking lot near the Mamaroneck train station. With the colder weather upon us, this indoor space is much needed. Our demolition efforts were the first step in the process towards preparing the building for use again. All the volunteers felt gratified in being able to give back to the community, especially on Mitzvah Day.
