Volunteers rebuild neighbors' homes
Superstorm Sandy ravaged the tristate area more than five years ago, yet hundreds of New York City homes are still feeling the effects. Leone John, a homeowner on Staten Island, says Sandy destroyed her electricity and carpeting. Water seeps through her home nearly every time it rains. It's been a long road, but as of Friday, the single mother of two can proudly call her house a home again, thanks to the collaborative work of Rebuilding Together NYC and NYCHA. Volunteers have started to gut renovate John's bathroom, kitchen, and more.
