Hurricane Sandy relief in Mastic Beach NY part 2

Since the response to the last post was, well beyond overwhelming I have decided to add some more photos from the work we did this past weekend in Mastic Beach, NY. Most of these show our team at work in the field and in light of the tragic consequences some are even comical.

First thing in the morning we were assigned to the Red Cross warehouse in Bohemia, NY where we helped load all of the trucks that were needed to respond to the four disaster zones.

I hadn’t done anything like this in nearly 20 yrs.

After arriving with the ERV full of supplies we learned that we will be tasked with entering the disaster zone to make direct deliveries. Here I am assessing the response capacity of our ERV.

Just before the team set out to disperse supplies to the distressed families, the delivery from the Marshall Tucker Band arrived so we posed for a quick photo.
