Pace Students Head to the Rockaways to Help Rebuild this Spring Break!

Pace’s Alternative Spring Break: Rebuild the Rockaways Student Volunteers

This week 15 Pace students have traveled to the Rockaways in Queens to help rebuild still vacant homes for families that were forced out by Superstorm Sandy in late 2012.  Each day this week they will  be blogging about their experiences, sharing pictures, and more.  Keep an eye on our blog, follow our Facebook pages HERE and HERE, and add us on Twitter at @ccarynyc & @ccarplv.  Most content will be tagged #PaceASB14.

The students are volunteering with Friends of Rockaway, a great non-profit organization that is coordinating the on the ground rebuilding effort for many families.  If you are interested in helping, you can look them up at


This event is sponsored by the Center for Community Action and Research, Project Pericles at Pace University, and the Office of Student Affairs in both Pleasantville & New York City.
