New York Cares and Redkite Gives

Sandy is long gone, but the rebuilding of hard-hit areas of New York and New Jersey continues.

On Thursday 21st August, Redkite partnered with New York Cares to help with post-Sandy reconstruction.

Seven Redkite Givers voyaged to the Far Rockaways to help rebuild a community space: the West End Temple children’s program center, located just yards from the beach and badly damaged by Sandy.

Our workers donned their overalls and were then tasked with insulating the ceiling and interior walls of the rebuilt two-story structure. Gloves, tape measures, box cutters, and staple guns were the tools used to measure, cut, and install rolls of pink fiberglass insulation.

Five hours later, the walls and ceiling were thoroughly padded – and the Redkite Gives team was sweatier than a Manhattan subway platform in summer. Because as a fellow site volunteer pointed out: the more insulation you put in, the hotter it gets!

No complaints from Redkite’s Givers, though. “Just a few hours from our usual lives brought a shelter in desperate need of help a step closer to be new and usable again,” said Redkite project manager Hima Anne, who organized the event. “So let’s keep making a difference.”
