My day as a volunteer.

This past Friday I volunteered in Long Beach to help distribute desperately needed items for victims of Hurricane Sandy.  Countless people, as we all know, were severely impacted by this storm.  People lost ALL of their possessions.  Through donations of food, clothing, shoes, toiletries, baby necessities, household cleaning supplies, etc. victims of this horrible storm are able to somewhat start to put their lives back together again.  If you would like to help please donate to the Red Cross.







Sorting the clothes in categories.
These wonderful members of the Sikh faith volunteered their time and delicious food to the victims and volunteers.
We are hoping that they open a restaurant.  The food was the best!
The name of their organization is "Namdhari Sikh Foundation."

It felt really good to volunteer and meet so many kind people.

  1. You are one strong lady, Elyse. It's great that you can help since you suffered during the storm although maybe not as much as some. It's heartbreaking to see the destruction and disruption to our beautiful neighborhoods and beaches. We also desperately need building supplies and contractors. The wait time to get a boiler is weeks at best. If you can locate a contractor they need to have their supplies and equipment to restore badly needed heat to damaged residences. I don't know who can address this but we'd need less warm clothing if we had the means to heat our "damaged" homes. Thank you for helping. Hurricane Sandy was a life changing experience for me. I wonder if and when life in our lovely communities will ever be the same or even normal again.
