Hurricane Sandy Student Led Relief Efforts
We Come Home is a growing, student-led movement that is mobilizing college students from New York and New Jersey to partake in post-Sandy rebuilding efforts during winter vacation. We Come Home connects students to organizations in need of volunteers based on location and availability via a single, brief form. These organizations will provide students the training and preparation needed to contribute to the immense clean up and rebuilding efforts.
We Come Home needs the help of students on campuses across the country to build the movement by informing their peers of our mission. To this end, We Come Home is currently building its college ambassador program. Our ambassadors will be guided by communications materials and online support.
Students interested in being a We Come Home leader and schools seeking to connect to the cleanup effort can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Further information for students, organizations, and media can be found on their website www.wecomehome.com.
