submitted by Julie Hummel on December 7, 2011
Tornado Disaster Relief, Gloucester, VA
In March of 2011, a tornado struck the Gloucester community over an 8 mile radius. There were 2 deaths from the storm and several injuries. A middle school and multiple homes were destroyed. The first team of students helped local citizens to clean and haul away debris from the tornado.
• The Blayton Building, Williamsburg, VA
“The Blayton Building” has 28 housing units for the poor, elderly and disabled community in the City of Williamsburg. Since The Blayton Building does not have a person to maintain the cleaning of the property, a second team of volunteers spent the afternoon washing windows, painting interior doors, vacuuming, mopping, and raking and weeding the grounds.
• York River State Park, York County, VA
Eleven miles west of Williamsburg, York River State Park consists of over 2,500 acres of a coastal estuary that preserves a portion of York River frontage and its related marshes. Our third team of volunteers assisted the park rangers in staining the picnic tables and trash cans blinders for the park.
